Thanks for the kind words.  I think it was rather fun to do this and I'd
like to do more!  I can say that I'll take the commands you recommend and
see if I can't figure out what
the problem is so we can get it fixed wherever its happening.

I look forward to getting these kinds of videos out everywhere.  In fact, I
was talking with my employer, Guru Labs, about doing some more videos in a
more system
administration nature.  For instance, a simple video on how to do LVM and
RAID together using both GUI and text tools.    Probably a bit longer and
more in-depth, but
still fun.

Thanks again Jeff...
