Not necessarily. The rule of thumb is that the S and K number should add up to 100, but you don't absolutely *have* to do that. If NetworkManager really does need to start up so late, we should still have it stopped as late as possible in the shutdown process. If the S and K don't add up to 100 because of t hat, oh well. However, I'm not sure that would entirely solve all the issues that are being discussed in this thread. -- Lamont Peterson <lamont gurulabs com> Senior Instructor Guru Labs, L.C.
