GOTTIT! It's solved!

Thanks to everybody for your help, especially Richard.

It was ZONEALARM!!! I tried all cookie combinations including "enable all" - I usually have it set to "ask" - and it made no difference. Then I remembered having had difficulty making a purchase from an online site, and they kept telling me to enable cookies, which of course I had, and as a last resort switched off ZoneAlarm and was able to order. So I did the same here (I am running Apache offline anyway) and Bingo!! Set the cookies back to "ask", and it still runs; of course it does ask. I will configure that out.

Not very satisfactory in the long run - I will have to configure ZA too; but at least it will let me get on .... to Chapter 3!
