It's a learning experience. Just remember we have tested this 
configuration numerous ways, we are not perfect and we do miss things, 
but we know the common errors are and what causes them. If you do come 
accross another error that you run into, don't hesitate to post. We will 
tell you what's wrong, or if we have a problem.
