Hi all,

Thanks for the further replies. As consensus seems to be there's 
nothing obvious to explain the problem, it's either going to be that 
my (relatively unsophisticated about computers) friend and I had a 
miscommunication over email or there is something at play that I won't 
be able to discern remotely.

I'll have him verify all steps again and then call `gremlins'.

Thanks for the help,

Brian vdB
