Thanks....

Well I didn't really ask if it was possible.  I showed my setup and
asked if anyone could see what was wrong with it.

But anyway:

I spent a little longer than 30 seconds and followed your recipe to
the letter aside from using yum.

And bingo.... it works just like yours did.

So now I can back up and start adding the same configs I had
originally until it breaks and I'll know what was causing my trouble.

Thanks again
