ha mo, Dave Clark, Ben Boyle,


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Ben,
     In an Internet environment, don't even think of wanting to do 
this -- even if it were possible (which it isn't).  The ability to do 
that would almost instantly render every PC connected to the Internet 
to be completely trashed and rendered almost useless to the common 
person.  Thankfully, Internet security protocols dictate that it not 
be possible to do this using a standard browser setup.
Take care,
Dave Clark
