Thanks again for your input. In answer to question: Yes
Fortunately, I've had to work on SSH before, so I am very familiar with the need to restart the service after any change.
I am curious about one thing -- what would SSH have to do with a normal login at the console? I mean, I know I'd have to change it there too, for remote secure logins. But right now I'd settle for getting the console login looking right. Can I ignore SSH for now? (Or is there some relationship between a normal login at the console and SSH?)
