First, the above quote is just to good not to include. Secondly I am sorry 
for the double post, I accidently used a non-subscribed email to post. When 
I got the "you can't do this" email from questions I just did it again with 
a valid email. They eventually allowed my mistake also.

Thank you for all the information. I got what I need to go forward with my 
immediate issues. It took me a bit to understand David's setup. That was 
exactly what I am going for. It's above my pay-grade now but I have some 
bare metal to learn and practice on.

Thank you all,
