It's amazing what happens when you follow the instructions! Somehow I had overlooked step 6 when I received my eee.

I ran step 6 and went back to the GRAMPS page for the Eee and tried again. It worked!

A big "thank you" to everyone that helped and had ideas and also for your patience.

Laura (who is now using GRAMPS on her eee)
