I knew you'd have some idea...you almost always do...I may try build 211 
first since WMI always tends to slow my login scripts down 
significantly. Other than that, WMI is a very cool tool.

Thanks. I'll read up on it and see if I can get it to work on my 
development machine. That way I'll have it for backup if the 211 idea 
falls through.
