Thanks for the quick response. I opened NotePad as Admin and was able to 
update the conf successfully and all is  working as planned.
Funny though, when I edit the file NOT as an admin, it shows the updated 
file without the Admin changes, but editing it as Admin, it looks OK. Vista, 
gotta love it.
