It sounds like you are getting a lot more exercise than a SysAdmin should. ;-) I am surprised that you have so many systems on which this is apparently a problem and yet you do not do provisioning where a simple config change would resolve it. Even without provisioning for installs, any config provisioning would easily handle this. I am also a SysAdmin, and I do (very rarely) use this key combination, but certainly not often enough to see this as a big deal. There are soooo many ways around this change and around the need for the key combination in the first place. I wish you luck in your upstream fight. -- Patrick "The N-Man" Barnes nman64 n-man com http://n-man.com/ LinkedIn: http://linkedin.com/in/nman64 Have I been helpful?
