Thanks Randy, I use google's advanced search all the time!

The trouble with limiting to is that it's a bigger search
space than just this list's archive.  I've been reading the freebsd
handbook for quite some time, and have learned a lot there.

But I've got a few dots left that need connecting that I think you all
will be able to set me straight on very quickly.  So, I'm off to start
another thread on what I really came here for...

(but making the archive search work would be great still!)
