Hey thanks everyone for the help. The script that Huck showed was a good 
starting point for me to make the changes to fit my boss specific 
requirements.

Thanks, Dan for the book recommendation. I hope it's in stock at Barnes and 
Knoble otherwise I'll order it online. I'll also take a look at the other 
link you provided. That webpage has everything in a 128 page PDF.

I'm slowly turning this Library from an all Windows shop to a mixed 
environment.
