Well, Brian just posted another step by step that may contain a clue as 
to what I was doing wrong.  When the drives get here, and Jessie is 
sicced out the door in about 2.5 weeks, I will find out.

Brian defined /home first, then /, and lastly swap,

whereas I was defining /boot, /, /home, /opt and swap in that order.  But 
I am not at all convinced that the first partition should not be /boot.  
If boot then winds up as a directory on /, and its 1.9 Tb into the drive 
from from cylinder 1, I'd have reservations about the bios's ability to 
find its boot files.

Cheers, Gene Heskett
