Scott, thanks for the tip. I will be spending some time learning about
how to manage SQL tables. I have not really spent much time doing so. I
tried to do as you suggested & also read the online docs on MySQL for
more info. I have got some permission problems that are not resolved.
Debian sets up MySQL as root on localhost initially. I seem to be having
some problems getting a handle on getting this altered. I am using
WebMin to manage all of my databases/tables in MySQL as I like GUI
interfaces for speed. Any thoughts are appreciated.
