Heya. Much thanks for the directions. I'm running into one problem, however. I have a 55sec startup sound file running and pw login on. When i boot up and don't immediately login, the sound file plays fine. if, however, i login while it is playing the sound file, it terminates it. I'm wondering if there is a workaround for this or something i might be able to mess with to get it to stop terminating the startup sound. All other sounds are disabled btw. Any thoughts?
