    Jack you are right I did assume the grounds were grounded. Thanks for pointing this out.

    For the most part, they are not grounded. I checked. I was able to ground the two that were grounded. These two must have been installed at a later time. I am assuming, then, that unless I am able to run a ground wire, the others will just remain as they are...ungrounded. Thanks for the help one and all.
