Thanks Dugi.  Turns out that somehow a version of the retail guide was saved onto my HD as a system file.  I can’t seem to delete it (my mac tells me I don’t have permission and I can’t get that changed) and it was defaulting to that version.  It is only the retail side – so I deleted and am installing WoW in hope that it will stop using that “system directory” and use the correct path to my removable HD.
