JohnYate, thanks HEAPS!!! You made my day, and quite possibly my week. With my non-experience with Linux, I could not have worked that out in weeks of searching the net.
As far as I can see, it seems to be working just fine for me, exactly as you described, and only took a moment to do.
Thank you also for not just posting the solution, but also describing the way you came to that solution. I think I learned a few first bits about Linux from that, and from questions that your descriptions gave me, which I then researched again myself... as long as I feel that it's useful knowledge that will make me more productive, I'm always hungry to learn more.
I wish I could return the favour or "pay it forward" to someone else who has a question, but at this point in time, if I tried that it would at best be a joke, and at worst cause someone a lot of trouble - so I will refrain from that until some time where I may have learned enough to at least know what I know.
I'm really relieved that I can now move forward into my personal new Linux era, hopefully soon leaving Windows behind.
The future is bright
