umm...i did:

Code:
find / | grep rc.local
and it returned nothing...sooo...that file doesnt exist, does it?

i can find "rc" in the /etc/inet.d folder but that doesnt LOOK like its it...the only things that stand out to me in the /etc folder are the "rcX.d" folders (1-5 and S) and the inet.d folder...
