Yah, sorry about that, had to reply to that one straight from the mail queue, good ol' copy-paste...

Well shit. What I would have to do, for a fresh install, ugh...3 hour drive each way to get to my server...would take a weekend...I MIGHT be able to do it...

I think I'll try that, I think I've about got it all figured out, and can do it right this time..I think where i screwed up must have been somewhere in the compiling...Or from the upgrade from FC1, as it never seemed to work right since then..

Thanks for trying to help, though! I guess it's all in my hands now...
