Actually, I was looking up how to mount /etc which I completely forgot about.
I didnt say I had one of the problems mentioned in the thread. I asked a simple question to which I wanted a simple answer. If my assumptions are wrong and I am still unable to figure out the filer problem, I will most certainly post questions.
Some of us like to troubleshoot every aspect of a problem. Thats how we learn!
Thank you kindly for your help!
