No problem, James - sometimes talking and working through a 
problem from the bottom up exposes wheere things are falling 

For those who are still following this thread, this approach 
-- of guided questions which help the admin of a box think and 
diagnose analytically, and to grow as a sysadmin -- is the 
approach of the Centos IRC channel #centos, on 

  ... from the /topic of the channel ...

We are pretty careful to encourage research in posing 
questions there:
 	How to ASK a question:  http://tinyurl.com/anel

We try to keep the Signal to Noise ratio up pretty high 
(*cough* see contra., #linux, #fedora, #debian), by 
encouraging the use of out-of-channel collaborative debugging 
 	Use a pastebin http://pastebin.com

We try to stay close to 'on topic' and do not usually attempt 
to support packages or issues outside of the upstream PNAELV's 

and best of all ...

We have a pretty good floorshow for the price (i.e., 'free') 
-- the trout award spoons to people who 'spoonfeed' answers.

All of the channel operators are well known names to this 
mailing list and the centos project, chosen in part because 
they have shown sustained skills and good judgment in the 
CentOS problemspace.
