Anyone know how to prevent this type mismatch error?

Hi Rob,

I tested this script on OS 9.2 and it worked fine, but I think the 
problem may be that this line has lost it's last word due to the text 
wrap of the email. Make sure the "then" is on this line rather than on 
a line of it's own.

I couldn't get any of this to work for OS X. If it works in X then I 
think it is still only looking at the Classic network setup rather than 
X's setup.
