Later in the email you saw I noticed the missing -i, however the space between 
I did not notice.  It looked like they were together to me.

Thanks.  You mean the extra space, don't you?

I did some more experimenting and left in the failures so you could see and 
criticize my logic:

steven at Studio25:~$ avimerge -o O_Jerusalem -i "O Jerusalem I" "O Jerusalem II"
scanning file O Jerusalem I for video/audio parameter
AVI open: avilib - Error opening AVI file
REASON: No such file or directory
steven at Studio25:~$ avimerge -o O_Jerusalem.avi -i "O Jerusalem.avi I" "O 
Jerusalem II.avi"
scanning file O Jerusalem.avi I for video/audio parameter
AVI open: avilib - Error opening AVI file
REASON: No such file or directory
steven at Studio25:~$ avimerge -o O_Jerusalem.avi -i 1.avi 2.avi
scanning file 1.avi for video/audio parameter
AVI open: avilib - Error opening AVI file

steven at Studio25:~$ avimerge -o O_Jerusalem.avi -i I.avi II.avi

The last time, the Icon for the output changed to a similar Icon as the movie 
files.  Before that change, the icon represented a text icon.  Additionally, 
when I tried to open the movie, the Kaffeine window was white with writing in 
it, indicating that the movie was not going to play.  This time Kaffeine 
opened to a black window, the way my movies usually start, however it did not 
play.  I also noticed that the progress bar was all the way to the right.  It 
would not return to the starting point, and clicking on Play only loaded the 
Codecs and confirmed that they were already open.  Does that suggest 
anything?  Thanks for your continued help.
