Hi Mike,

It wasn't permissions, it was the fact that the files I tried to include 
had variables that didn't expand. Hardly surprising considering those 
files weren't intended for the purpose I tried to put them to.

Just one last question - did you use Bind from the repos or did you 
build from source?
