I saw that Chiz told you that the NIDS images are still encrypted,
so I will not go into that here.

OK, looks good.

This is almost correct.  The settings would be:


The difference is the removal of the trailing '*' on the end of the DIRMASK

It will work if the dataset names you setup match what the Fkey
menu system is using.

This is due to your window manager interpreting those function keys.
You need to modify your window mannager setup to not use the function
keys used by the Fkey menu (basically all A, F, S, and C Fnn
combinations).  I did this on my RedHat Linux system at home for Gnome
quite awhile back, so I know that it is possible.

I know that it is a problem in Gnome 'cause I ran into it.  Since I
havn't done the same for KDE, I can't give you a roadmap of what to do
to fix the problem; sorry.

re: function keys causing strange behavior in Fkey menu related to window
