	These were key for me.  The other ones were already
in my registry, but these 'values', added under the Parameters 
'key', worked like a charm.  Thanks!

	Not sure what the DomainCompatibilityMode refers to, but
I can understand the DNS name resolution issue being a problem,
since my local domain name isn't really part of my DNS chain.

	Interesting, them making that a requirement -- guess they 
are trying to get rid of that irregularity.  A good heads-up
for me with future Windows versions...*sigh*.
