reset assured, it would take more than your comments to hurt my feelings.
nor do i take them personally, other than;

i do take them as being towards me as your comments #1 [see below, as
you seem to prefer to top post] states 'keep telling ...'.

so why even bother to post what you did, as you did?

issue was that he could not log in as root, so main intent was to get bruce
into his system with as little in his way as possible, ie, a desktop login.

and your advice of 'Date: Wed, 26 Nov 2008 08:51:32 -0800' to edit
'/etc/pam.d', which is a directory, which i have already stated in another
post, is giving good advice?

as for good advice, that was provided by tom horsley, which i did not see
until after i replied to nick's 'text/html' post in my 'html' mbox and
changed to my text only 'inbox'.

even use it on food.

in a free world without fences, who needs gates.
to mess up a linux box, you need to work at it;
to mess up an ms windows box, you just need to *look at* it.
