RE: init.d

i think you'r right...
when the webmin start, it goes on background without giving any information
to the cygrunsrv...
Right now, i've made all my webmin config running but i'm unable to run it
automatically at the boot....
i need help from superman ?? hehe..
I try many things in order to bypass the service...
i've put the cygwin.bat in staring menu in microsoft, and in it i'f modified
the bat file with option "-initfile /etc/webmin/start"..
i can say it start pretty well with just the problem that in this case, at
the computer boot, the cygwin terminal is launch (normal it is the W2000
starting menu) but the terminal stay in foregrounf and it is freezed ;-(((
pfffeuuu when i want that webmin stay on foreground it goes on background
and countrary...
there will not be an middle world ?

Yep, Max, you're right.  Sorry...
Still, Guillaume, see if webmin has flags that would make it behave as
cygrunsrv expects.
