  Work like a champ! I just tore out the startup section - changed the
processes to ones I want...and away we go. It looks like Sawfish
starts them up itself. I still kinda confused about the process
involved but works :)

Maybe I missed it but I would think this info should be **somewhere**
on the Wiki...or mailing list?? After seeing the desire to
never dabble in Lisp has been reinforced :)

Thanks so much for all your help
