*Hi Richard,

Nope it is not the KEY RING, I do have WICD working, I was thinking that 
I needed to edit some script or script's for it too work correctly...But 
it is now working just fine, although I'd love to have it automatically 
start up when logging in...NO KEY RING is being asked on my system...
