Though this is probably an accurate indicator of external db usage,
are really just catalog variables that are in turn used by the catalog 
directives that *actually* provide connection to, and usage of, an
external DB.

Probably the best indicator is to log into the UI, go to the
tab, then look at the table info for products. You'll get quite a bit of

info, including db type, field definitions, etc - the internal info
the table as Interchange knows it.

Ed, When you say look at the table info, what do you mean. Which menu
tab under administration do I need to look at?
