I've not understanded well... I've done all the procedure you've described, 
but I'm not sure about what to add into the inittab file.

I have the following in my inittab file:
##Start DXSpider on bootup and respawn it should it crash
DX:35:respawn:/bin/su -c "/usr/bin/perl -w /spider/perl/cluster.pl" sysop 
SP:35:respawn:/bin/su -c "DXSPIDER_ROOT=/home/sysop2/spider /usr/bin/perl 
$DXSPIDER_ROOT/perl/cluster.pl" sysop2 >/dev/tty8

The DX line is referred to the first (and the original) spider node, the 
last is referred to the new second spider node.
I would like to redirect the output onto the tty8 (instead of /dev/null), so 
I can see the flow...
But after "telinit q", it is not working... Please, can you tell me 
something ?!?

TIA, 73's de Luigi, ik5zuk
