I'm glad I was able to help you and the other Scott (scottnasello)
with this issue of starting slimserver automatically at boot up.
Not trying to make any "smart" remarks, but, what perl script? The
script I wrote is a bash shell script... ;-)
Nonetheless, glad you got it all working!

I figured out what I was doing wrong. Nice work on the pl script by
the way. I've had the opportunity to do some perl programming in the
past, so I was rusty to say the least. I found my 'black book of
Perl' and blew the dust off and after a few hours learned the error
of my ways.

box next. Ordering it tomorrow, and I'll probably be bugging
everyone some more when I start hacking into it. Since it comes with
no HD (you can add your own) I assume the kernel is stored on NVRAM
somewhere on the box, which might require a few heavy tricks to get
at the root. Won't know until I get one on my bench, though.. I have
several PDF files from O'Rielly's books for linux users, think we
could put them up on the files area?
