I found one of your old posts that got me past that problem. The bash
suggestion is what worked. I can now navigate freely through the admin
pages. Frankly, i guess it went over my head,
can you tell me what you had me do?
And, is that the end of this problem or just a temporary solution?

This is simply wrong.
I suggest you try this:
setenv MINIVEND_DBFILE 1
(or on bash):
to remove GDBM from the equation.

This looks like one of:
1. You don't have write permission somewhere necessary, like
your catalog directory.
2. Bogus installation of GDBM on your "virtual server".
"Virtual server" has no meaning. You might want to let people in on the
results of a "uname -a" command.
