  You can tell me this and *not* be able to have the client start up in
the config.sys? ;) Naughty OS/2 user. :)
  Ok let me rephrase that, it's not *easily* able to hide a client from
the startup folder. :)

  Btw if you want to add the client to the config.sys just add

  but it might not startup in the right directory so it's probably safer
to just put it in the startup.cmd file.
