It did thanks. It took 3.5 hours but it works. Already downloaded a HD 
program and it works beautifully.

Also made a tar of the compiled ffmpeg directory on a  memory stick  in 
the hope that if I have to reimage the SD card I
won't need to recompile.

To answer your comment from last night, yes I do have a fairly fast 
connection 30 Meg cable - usually works at about 24-28 Meg

Anyway - it works. This is great.

Thank you so much for all your help. You guys have been very patient.
I think I might put together a full how-to blog post about this so that 
all the other linux-challenged who are a
couple of steps behind me won't have to keep pestering the list with the 
same questions.
