I can't remember what it was before, but I think the comment was something 
like no such file or directory.

Nice to hear your voice, my friend.  I finally got it to work, however I had a 
permissions problem.  The first couple of times, I got it to show read and 
write permission for the owner, with the box at the bottom checked for all 
folders etc.  Still twice, it retained root root at the bottom.  Then finally 
it accepted the instruction on the third attempt, and it works now, just 
before I answered your email.
