I understand, but I was going on the theory that since it worked previously 
(RH6.1 and earlier version of majordomo) that it should work correctly 
now.  That may be an invalid assumption.

Ok, then this is also different from what I had in 6.1.
The was in the majordomo directory.
This could explain some problems, because I have to tell webmin where the file is.
If it's using the wrong file...

Using "find", I see /etc/, and /etc/, plus 
my archived old copy, and /usr/lib/majordomo/ (which I created)
So, I'll go nuke those bogus copies, and keep the /etc/
so now /etc/ is the active config file.

Ok, they're gone, but no great loss.

At this point, you've lost me. What's an RHS?

Good idea, but I need clarification on the above, to proceed, I think.
