Dan, check my original message again;
I did enter the command 
sed -i 'dummy/d' /etc/passwd /etc/group

"sed -e expression #1, char2: extra characters aftercommand"
was a system message received in response to the command.

Anyhow I'm still trying to figure out what I have done 
wrong.  Any suggestions appreciated.

Rick Richardson.
