I pretty much knew someone was going to reply exactly as you did, but I figured I'd give it a shot anyway. On the "I'm new to linux" note, the link you provided me offers no explanation for a newbie.

You still haven't said what distro you're running, either, so even if someone cared to duplicate the info, we have no idea what you're running.

Clever indeed. It's funny, I was reading that pretty much as I typed that I couldn't find it. That's like locking your keys in the car, opening one door with a coat hanger, and proceeding to open the other doors with the coat hanger because those doors are of course still locked ...
