      Hi,

      The opngs.cfm page is already external to the root URL, that is why.
      Nothing is crawled from there. Only URLs that start with
      http://www.co.marin.ca.us/depts/HR/Main/ are internal.

      Solution:
      add
      http://www.co.marin.ca.us/depts/HR
      and also
      http://www.co.marin.ca.us/depts/hr
      as "internal" in the initial dialogbox.
