[Users] simfactory: adding new machine?

Hi all.

I'm trying out einsteintoolkit + simfactory on a non-standard machine, 
and am failing rather quickly. I followed the simfactory tutorial advice:


... which said to edit the section of udb.pm entitled "Customize your 
local machine here". Since this heading no longer appears, I imagine the 
tutorial is slightly out of date. Anyway, changing "Options for new 
machines" along these lines doesn't seem to work -- if I run ./sim, I 
get the following error message:

Uncaught exception from user code:
Wile setting user option [discover][nickname]="discover": Machine 
"discover" does not exist at udb.pm line 123.

What's the proper method for adding a new machine? Do I actually have to 
add to the "mdb.pm" file?
