OK. That helps a bit. I guess what I'm trying to figure out is the
backend code that generates all the admin pages the customer never sees.
Once I get the admin page up where I can create an order after selecting
a customer or generating a customer, the URL shows I am on a page called
"<website>/cgi-bin/<cat name>/admin/entry.html .I need to make a special
shipping method that can only appear on this page that allows a manual
shipping price entry.
