On the far right side of the image, I have the top and bottom rails linked, with the transistor source running to ground on the top rail, and the drain running to battery + through the diode.  That should work, right?

Ah, smaller screen, didn't see that.
Yes, if the rails actually go the whole length. Some breadboards are split in half. Confirm yours with a meter. You are better off with shorter connections.

Thanks again for all of your help!  It's much appreciated!  I'll definately order some of the MOSFETs you linked to for my future projects.
