    Sorry if this seems like a stupid question but you did click 'Ok' to save
your changes before clicking 'Apply Changes'   This is a rather straight forward

thing to do in IC so it should work. If not...  Take a peek in your
CatalogName/error.log file to see if something is in there. Make sure the
FES F2D and FEG are indeed in CatalogName/products/shipping.asc
and correct permission... Can't think right now what else to check.

    As far as different shipping for different products... I don't know off the
though seems like I've read someone asking how to do that some time ago.
Search the archives and I bet you'll find it.
