Thanks Randy and Ag.

Randy, I understand the patience thing.  I know how it is to field
questions like this.

I thought I was diligently following the book, but the answer must be
that something was missed section 4.2.

If I need to start over, it shouldn't be too bad.  I took the extra
time to create scripts and back everything up, including an image of
the "fresh" filesystem (using partimage).

And there is no excuse for my top posting as I remember reading it on
the website.  My apologies.

Thank you.
