Hi,
  Thanks for your help!  I tried that, and for indentation style, it displayed "gnu".  I didn't see any errors in the Messages list.

From here: http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/IndentingC#toc1

I found this:

    (setq c-default-style "linux"
c-basic-offset 4)

That seemed to work for me.  I have emacs 23.3.1.  Anyways, you set me on the right track.

Thank you!

Example? Emacs-version?

This works for me:

emacs -Q
M-: (add-hook 'c-mode-hook '(lambda () (c-set-style "linux")))
open "foo.c"
C-h v c-indentation-style
-> result = "linux"

To be expected, isn't it?

I get "Undefined style: garbage" in the *Messages* buffer.
