Basic question re configuration of Embedded Discovery Service

So, fiddling with EDS a bit more.

- index.html in the protected path is a symlink to /etc/shiibboleth-ds/index.html
- My custom discoData file is now in /etc/shibboleth-ds with the other EDS files
- /etc/shibboleth-ds/idpselect_config.js has the following line:
    this.dataSource = 'discoData';    // Where to get the data from

When I browse to the protected path, I get a blank screen, but the source shows that I am looking at the right index.html file and the page title is "IdP select test bed"

I was expecting to see a page letting me select one of the two IdPs in my JSON discoData file.

My understanding of what's going on is obviously fawlty.
