Mostly there, now just some testing.  This was way too simple...For the 
record, in osCommerce and perhaps  zen-cart, you have to select:

        Modules --> Payment --> Authorize.net --> then select to edit 
the gateway

With Virtuemart, it's a different route which is unexpected if you've 
had your expectations set...  Select:

       List Payment Methods --> then select to edit the credit card 
method  --> *General tab*
The vanilla installation has it already linked to the authorize.net 
class, ps_authorize.  You can check off the card types to process then 
select the *Configuration* tab.  Here is where you enter the 
authorize.net login, password, etc.

Harumph... not a technical problem - a virtuemart newbie issue!
