Thanks I have 'smart' ON and have  run the diagnostics successfully to 
compare with Roberts printout I can see bunch of differences so I will 
use my evening time to study and see how much I can understand.

This worked out just great, I think I have a more clear picture of what 
this powerful command line can do. If I take it in small bytes I can 
learn. I will post a new thread if I get stuck. Soon as I understand the 
printout I will post what I learned to see it I really get it.
Thanks
Herb
