Sorry but I don't feel I did anything wrong.  My frustration and
attitude is well placed especially with all the replies I am getting
that are saying the same thing.

No one has obviously read my email or my questions.

I did read the wiki and other various documentation which is how and
why I got where I was with it.  In my email I did not ask anyone to
tell me how to do anything.

I asked for clarification on what I had read and what I was understanding.

Isn't that the point of these groups and mailing lists?
