Duuuuh! That's exactly it... I was firing rebol up with rebol & but was expecting rebol to open another window as its console (in the same fashion that I'd already seen with w2k). Using fg did The Right Thing. I've obviously been spending too much time in w2k and not enough at the coffee pot! Thanks again! -jn-
