Aha! Thanks. It's been a while since I tried the install (the weekend
1.4 was released), but I seem to recall that the installer allowed you to
drop to the shell prompt at some point if you wanted, so I could run that
command there, correct?

I was at the local eatery, alone as usual, washing down a root beer float with
straight shots of bourbon when she walked in, red-haired and stacked like the
Titanic. She spoke. "I need a cheeseburger with everything and a lawyer...in
that order." "Jake, get the lady a cheeseburger," I shouted. "Edmund T.
Bradley, counselor at law," I murmured, dusting the bar stool off with my
hanky. "How can I help you?" Okay, so I'm not a lawyer, but I watch Judge
Judy all the time. How hard can it be?
