Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

well what version of windows ...
and although i don't know exactly what your
getting it, and i am going under the assumption
that your referring to something similiar to a
cron job ... so couldn't you just use the
task manager ?!
Side note though: Please refer to Windows and Microsoft as... well, Windows and Microsoft Not as @#$$%. It makes hard to track/search posts like this, plus Windows is a great system just as Linux is if used correctly .

Oops, did not really give a thought to posting here. When I want to kick something arount this is the only place I ever go. I don't spend a lot of time configuring windows machines. I am usually pretty grateful when they are working and do not fix something that is not broken. Although the nt based os is much more flexible i hope no one is claiming windows to be as flexible as linux. Specifically i am working on a dos batch file for use on w98 machines which will map a samba share. I cannot use the good ol windows persistant reconnect map drive because it initiates before the wireless binds to the AP. My users are not capable so i was using choice as a timer before net use. Now inadvertant keystrokes with the shell in the foreground is the problem, yes it is true they can not keep their hand off for 30 seconds. I am calling the batch file from the registry at startup and passing credentials and had hoped ther was a way to background the shell. No windows is not bad but I would not be having this problem with linux where I could easilly manage any of these environmental issues.
But i will post this in the proper forum; this is the first time i have had a mod yelling at me :-)
