Your guide is already my go-to source, especially since openSUSE 13.1 is our currently supported system (though I'm doing this testing on Porteus due to its file system resilience).  It's AWESOME, btw.  Very helpful.

I'll spend some time tomorrow going through chapter 6 and trying again.

Hi, I went through the same learning curve.  I wrote up my notes at http://rogerprice.org/NUT.html Perhaps there is something there that could help you.  Best Regards, Roger
