Thanks, Steve.  I stole a .rnd file off one of my other systems and copied 
it.  We'll see if it makes any difference.  I've just given the file full 
access to everyone, as Windows Vista is very protective about programs 
writing in the root directory of a hard disk.  The Windows OpenSSL seems 
to require C:\.rnd
