That is GREAT to hear

> ** What is the symptom?

It's been a few months since I attempted this.  I got fed up with it.  As I 
recall, I would take a snap-shot, restored the data on the slave, and 
started replication.  I would check it ever so often with SHOW SLAVE STATUS 
and suddenly, it would say "No" for the "SQL Running" option (I think it 
was).  I would simply get a mesasge like "Slave SQL thread exiting, 
replication stopped in log 'mysql-bin.000007' at position 195"  That was it. 
I was not able to find out why it stopped.

> ** Are you sure the data in slave is same as in master?

That is kind of what I suspect.  I didn't shut down the web site, and I 
suspect that while I was trying to take the snap shot that someone got in 
and changed a recod.  I plan on shutting down the web server portion this 
weekend to ensure that no one can get in and making sure that the data is an 
exact copy before I begin.

Great, I like the InnoDB, mostly for it's Foreign Key and Trigger capability

Great again.

Huuum. Then, this one concerns me.  Maybe someone else will chime in on this

When you say "master" are you referring to the replication relationship, or 
are you referring to the table relationship?  regarding replication, right 
now, I have only one master server, and one slave server.  Regarding tables, 
I do have some tables that related to what you would call two master tables, 
I suppose, but, of course, they all have unique ID fields?

>Do you really need row-based?  All my experience is with stmt-based.

My experience with non-row-based-replaction hasn't been so sweet at this 
point, being that replication stops without a very good explanation (at 
least, not one that I can find).

Thanks for your help, you've helped some of my concerns.
