Thanks :)  It came about as I started simply wrapping bash, but it kept
throwing up the occasional error which I didn't like much. I thought
of/stumbled into the SSH approach when I was looking at initscripts for some
reason or another.

Can't say I have. The target(s) are all 686 or above so I haven't needed to.

Just done a quick *man setarch* and the man page isn't very exhaustive, so
you may need to do some digging/experimenting to get it to realise different
subsets of the x86 architecture.

Good luck
