isamchk -dv news gives me:
ISAM file: news
Creation time: 1999-03-16 23:59:29
Data records: 53715 Deleted blocks: 0
Datafile Parts: 54305 Deleted data: 0
Datafile pointer (bytes): 4 Keyfile pointer (bytes): 3
Record format: Packed
Key Start Len Index Type Root Blocksize Rec/key
Interesting that it doens't list a key! Maybe that's my problem, huh? Duh!

Because the disk light doesn't flash more than once every few seconds, but
