I think I am actually aware of the differences. You must excuse,
I just spent about 34 hours locked away in the cluster room
bootstrapping my cfengine and FAI[0] knowledge from zero to a state
where the 40 machines install to provide desktop and cluster
(OpenMosix) services. Manuals *do* get blurry in those stretches...

Oh, that would make sense. I will try it as soon as I return to the
cluster, which may take a day or two.

Actually, I used .* but felt ashamed of it ;^>. I think the problem
is more with quotes... my instruction was:

  ReplaceAll "Driver.*\"nv\"" With "Driver${tab}${tab}\"nvidia\""

I forgot the exact error I got, but cfengine dir complain. I will
run it again when I am back in this dreaded cluster room.

Thank you for your response.
