Well I stand corrected. I guess that is just something I never questioned from 
a long time ago. I just automatically make sure to leave no 'white spaces' 
when I set up the script that starts IC on boot up or  an automatic  reboot. 
I been doing it so long I don't think about it. BTW I use Webmin to build 
these so It may be something peculiar to Webmin. Any way thanks for the
