Disregard... I fixed it... had two problems... one, somehow the player 
for the filetype .avi was set to "internal"... and it needed to be 
"Internal" (cap "I")... two, I copied all the files over as root, which 
is fine except that they got 700 perm's and needed 644... once I chmod'd 
them all to 644 I could play them just fine...

BTW: are there problems with the list? First it took me close to two 
days to be able to subscribe, and after I finally did, I got two emails 
from the list but haven't rec'd any others, nor even my own... and last 
I was subscribed I recall this list getting quite a bit of traffic...
