And after about 3 more installs, I got it to work, but in my calculations 
for partition size, I forgot theres around 80 GB in /var, my web pages 
etc, which was going to be in the / partition, so 40Gb was soon filled 
up in copying it across.  But lots of empty space left in home, so I 
fired up gparted to shrink the top of home and make room for a new /opt 
partition.  But gparted refuses to do that resize/move.  So it looks 
like another whole new install tomorrow, except tomorrow will be after a 
new quick change drive cage arrives

Damn this is getting old...
I finally hauled it out to the front deck within reach of an air hose and 
gave it its annual D&C, plus replaced the A slot cable (it wasn't red 
either) and put 3 layers of scotch tape on the back of the slot doors 
spring to make sure the drive was firmly seated as there were times it 
didn't register in the bios.  Now that seems to be good, but I trolled 
Newegg and found a 4 by 3 drive cage, which I needed a decade back when 
I built this box from scratch.  So thats on order, fedex=Monday here I'd 
imagine. TDE installed just like it was supposed to.

So I'm going to leave it be till that bit of rebuilding is done.

Many many thanks to those that helped or tried to help, Its appreciated, 
a lot.

Cheers, Gene Heskett
