Phil: I think I tried that, Saturday afternoon, but I will try it
again, after my daughter gets home. As I recall, that did not get me
into the true "root" environment, but into root for the Live CD.  I
will try it again, with each of the 3 Live CD's, and report back to
the list. When I tried to edit one of the configuration files I need
to edit, it was a different configuration file, provided by the Live
CD.   Thanks! Lanny
