hey no probs! yeah i know these impossible keyboard things! im bad

again and if i should try running your script... but i hadnt mounted 
anything on the network yet...
thanx heaps

"While UNIX says ``I'm sorry you can't do that'', MacOS has exactly two 
error messages. It either goes ``eep?'' or the setup box is simply not 
there until 12 other unidentified items have been installed and three 
apparently unrelated dialog boxes have been completed. "
