These questions relate to the win95hidden client....
Note that most users can just use the regular win32 client and 
specify the startup option "-hide" to get a nearly idential effect.
The regular win32 client will splash a dos window on the screen for a 
few seconds before hiding itself, while the win95hidden one won't.

Or, use rc5desh.exe -install.  This will make it start before user 
logon occurs.

Or check the registry entry like someone else mentioned, if you've 
'-install'ed it.

rc5desh.exe doesn't show in the task manager.  The above mentioned 
wintop will kill it, or the exitrc5.now file mentioned below.

Yes, it is.

No.  rc5desh.exe will send no output to the screen that interacts 
with the user.  As mentioned above, most people are better off with 
the regular win32 executable, and to hide it use rc5des.exe -hide.
