Well actually it worked with both commands on both super and non-super user
logins. I think that part of the confusion is that when I first tested it I
typed into the message box and for some reason put shell("ifconfig en0")
put's 0 into the message box. I still can't work out why!

Anyway just ifconfig en0 seems to work fine and there seems to be no
dependancy on superuser access. Now are ifconfig and ipconfig guaranteed to
be installed?

Thanks again for your help Ken
