This is interesting.

No I didn't change syslog.conf in any way (don't 
know enough to know what to change, nor why).

But, that said, there's *no* /var/log/all.log. It doesn't exist.

However, as you may see from another post I sent up a short time ago, 
this is solved and all is well. Everything appears to be working as it 

I won't say; "is working" that's pushing things a bit, instead "appears 
to be working" is much better!! :-)

As I said in the [SOLVED] [CLOSED] post, many MANY thanks for the help 
during the course of this day. I've lost count of the number of people 
who have jumped in and tried to get me up and running.
