The script is called dynacc (http://www.fire.wolfsburg.de/proj/dynacc/)
and its been designed for suse 6.2 or 6.3

I chose this script because it seems to do just about everything I need,
but its only been developed for suse.

I know suse 6.2 is old but i thought someone might still be using it or
would at least have some experience with it and be able to shed some

I dont think there is such a file in red hat except maybe
/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit or /etc/rc.d/rc.local

this could be interesting to port to red hat.

Thanks for your help Graham.
