Also, If you just do a deal like it does for new users at login..  After 
you enter a new users name, it asks you if the name is correct.. Copy the 
manner in which that is done..  Hope that made some sense, I'm tired..  
Also, you might want to put the ansi enabling process into the new user 
process.. As asking if you want ansi everytime someone logs in will 
undoubtly mess us 99% of login processes from tintin and tinyfugue.. 
etc..  and the last thing you want to do is make anyones life that much 
more difficult..:P Users tend to have this way of blowing little things 
out of proportion <grin>

God against man, man against God, man against nature, God against man, man 
against God, man against nature, nature against man, nature against God, 
             God against nature...very funny religion!
