Thanks for the reply. Yes it is in run level 3. I checked by the runlevel command to be sure.
The script is similar to what you typed. I was just trying to learn the process.
Script used to test-->
ls /home/ -lR >> /home/joe/Current_Directory
Now I am really confused.......
Any other input out there ?
I tried this on two systems (Both Debian Testing) with the same result...
