Kenneth Hatfield,
and anyone else who responds after I send this.

My orig question.
:I'm interested in directing the errors that normally go to
:/var/adm/messages, to a console window. I want them to also go to
:/var/adm/messages. But I wanted them to go to my console window as well. I
:know how to do this, sort of, in the syslog.conf. But I am wondering if it
:is possible to set it so it ONLY goes to MY console window, or some
:specific console window.

This is easily done just by running the follow command
tail -f /var/adm/messages

This was too easy. I would have thought of it, but I was looking for
something way to complex. This works great
Thanks again all.
