Okay, replacing the old fstab with Carl's fstab did the trick, though when I
rebooted it stuck at the screen 'GRUB (something)1.5'. I then rebooted with
the SuSE DVD and did a repair on GRUB and all seems to be well in the world
once again, since I am now back in my 'user' instead of in 'root'.

I really am grateful to Praxis and Carl and James and the others who got me
through this mess I created. If any of ya are ever in W. TN (exit 116 or 108
on I-40 is best, heh), I owe ya a beer or 12! Thank you all, this is *still*
the best darned list there is!
