Sorry thought I was sending this to the list when I hit reply. I made 
sure this time.

Output:
make: Entering directory `/etc/mail'
make: Leaving directory `/etc/mail'

sendmail.cf did have content in it this time.

I restarted the service:

Shutting down sendmail:                                    [  OK  ]
Shutting down sm-client:                                   [FAILED]
Starting sendmail:                                         [  OK  ]
Starting sm-client:                                        [  OK  ]

I didn't get any complaints.

This was the syntax I was told to use to append changes to my .cf file.  
If this isn't right what do I use? I had no clue about the previous 
command you gave me to generate the sendmail.cf file correctly.
