Thanks, that worked perfectly.  I've got another question:

I'm using some data I imported from Arc/Info using Arc's "ungenerate"command.  It doesn't appear to have any categories in the imported layer.  All I need is to assign a single category to all of the lines in my layer, so I can do some buffering.  I'm trying to do this with v.digit, using the "B - Bulk Label Remaining Lines" option, but I'm not having any success.  Is this the correct way to do what I want, and if not, can someone give me some advice on what to do?
