    How can I set my DSL to dial in at start-up? Currently it only does it when I run IE, so I have to start IE to let any other app access the net.
    thanks,

    Well, if IE dials up when it is opened, you could simply drag a URL shortcut into your Startup folder. When the system starts up, it will open IE. If what you say is true, then it will also dial-up and load the page you specified. If this works, you wouldn't need any third party apps.

    It does? Even if it did contain a swastika, its not that bad. The nazi's just spoilt what it meant.

    Thanks for replies guys.
    Yeah, the DSL has to do the dial thing or the connection isn't there. The lights on the modem are both green prior to the dial-up meaning that it's hooked to the DSL, but if the dial-box doesn't run I can't get on.
    I looked at RASDIAL but it seemed like a hassle. I'll try a shortcut to the dial-up thing in the StartUp folder.

    the swastika comes out more in the negative space around the lighter blue pattern... i'm not complaining... just being observant...
