Thanks to both of you. Kilgore I'm the only user on the system so I don't see a problem although I do see what you mean and your explanation as to why it's a bad idea is well understood. Since no one else is using the system I'm not too concerned but I will give it some thought. I was just looking for convenience but I'm already getting use to going to root to start FS up. Shanein thanks, after I made the post I went back to FS's site and looked closer at the manual, there is a script that can go in to the start up file, the info can be found here
the script is given and it says to place it in the rc.local file, it also says something about kppp having an option to launch scripts when it connects but I can't seem to locate it. any one know about that particular bit of info?
both of you have given me great answers. Thanks.
