Thank you very much for all the responses I received.  I did not realize
that I only replied to the sender, and not cc-ing the group.

Anyway, all the responses have been helpful, and it is clear to me now.  I
do have a follow-up question - how do I use FindRoot[] or any other
function to find ALL the roots of a non-polynomial function within a
specified range?

Thanks!
