Thanks Robert, it worked impeccably.

I had already upgraded to 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex), but had to downgrade to
8.04, because till now, neither Parallels nor VMware have released
builds that enable to install "Tools" (Parallel Tools, or VMware Tools)
on 8.10. Those tools make life much easier when in OSX one wants to
shuttle from host to guest and back.

Thanks again for your prompt answer.
