I had to do the work thing today, so wasn't able to get back to you
immediately.  I take it from reading your posting, that you have it up and
running, or is that a premature assumption?  Which steps made the big
difference?  I'll be here the rest of the evening fiddling with my set up
and trying some of the suggestions you and others have made.  Let me know
how it is going.  If I have any success, I'll post it.
