Er... wait... this is a separate stack entirely? Not a substack of your main 
stack? Have you already loaded it into memory? Neither the "start using" 
command nor the "insert" command are going to be able to find the stack 
otherwise unless you specify a physical location for it. Much better to make 
your library stack a substack. Then your "start using" command will probably 
do the trick for you.

Nope. You've done that all correctly. Any stack can be used as a library 
stack without any fiddling about.
