I'm sorry for causing you to bend the rules.

Any help at all is appreciated.

I'm affraid to ask my neighbor to burn any more CDs for me, so I'm not
sure if I can fall back to Debian Etch.  However, thank you for
mentioning another suitable build environment.

I've read that it's possible (actually easy) with Knoppix to boot from
an ISO.  I downloaded 5.1.1 today as a failsafe if I can't figure this
out.  Though I would still feel more comfortable with the "Known
Good."  So I'm going to try to figure it out before the next hint.
(This has become a fun little game).

Thank you for your kindness and patience in dealing with my "newbieness."

P.S. I like your strategy for sharing knowledge.  Providing direction
without cut and paste solutions causes a much greater understanding of
the material.  I can't remember the saying that goes with it, but
there's a philosophy behind it that basically says "you learn best
from your mistakes."
