Thanks Mike! That did the trick! My store is now working perfectly.

One problem I've just run in to is that now the I'm using 
Interchange::Link the back end does not seem to be working very well. To 
get the store to use /shop instead of /cgi-bin/shop I edited the 
variables.txt file and changed the CGI_URL to /shop. It looks like the 
backend also uses this variable. Now to get to the backend I go to 
/shop/admin/ ... I'm able to log in just fine but when in the design tab 
things are weird. I tried to edit index.hmtl and I can't publish or make 
any changes. I keep getting thrown back to the admin login page. Has 
anyone seen this? Is this a bug?

Thanks for all your help!
