Thank's Moe and Overthere,
After entering visudo. The pertinent line reads in complete form:
I'm guessing thats because on the initial install, I chose to "auto" ? configuire the first suggested dialer, X-isp. At any rate I havent made any intentional changes but it sure easy to screw up, I found out. I waited too long after I started and my screen saver kick in and I hit some letter key. and to make matters worse I close the window. The program warned me I had to programs running when I try to restart.
I followed the instructions to recover, I just hope I did it right. I think I may try Overthere suggestion, since it seems easier. I think I better wait for further instructions. Thanks Overthere, and Moe. Its always good to know there is more than one way of doing the same thing.
Subsequent edit about 10 minutes later. Overthere, Problem solved.. It must have taken me less than 5 minutes. I was going around in circles. I was adding for this session only. :-). Newbies are supposed to stuff like that ...RIGHT?. Anyway Im not really a newbie, I'm 63. :-). but Thanks. Nice to just be Able to click on Chestnut menu. In windows one can create a short cut, but perhaps thats good for another thread?
Second edit...3/31/09. More on Visudo....Moe is right...Warning..be very carefull. I got locked out my dialer. If you do open visudo, do your viewing and or changes but dont leave it open. I did and my screensaver kicked in and I usually hit any key to wake it up and that generated the first problem code. I decided on the quick solution and re installed. Opening visudo, it seems like an incredibly usefull option or command, loaded with tons of options, I as a newbie would only try with call by call advice. Thanks Moe also for introducing me to how to enter visudo. This Problem was solved.
