      Thanks Brian

      Did you use this "SpinDownUSBHarddisks" there are several choise,which
      did you use ?
      I hate vi i think that is the editor available,can i use gedit on my
      linux desktop to save the script and then use ftp client filezilla to
      copy it to the required dir in the slug.Then i could ssh into the slug
      and cange the attributes of the script,will this work ,i am a newbie.
      How did you do it.

      All the best Bobbyshafter
