Sorry I misunderstood the question. The idea was (of course) not to get
the dialog at all. Try to burn this gsdlsite.cfg on the CD:

[gsdl]
autoenter=1

In fact I think you can add any parameter (e.g. port number) as long as
it's not a path.

Rene

ps. I tested this as a read-only file on my harddisk and it seems to
work.

Hi,

To extend Rene's point a little further, you can easily change the
source
code so autoenter is on by default. You'll need Microsoft Visual C++
to
recompile the source code, however.

Regards,

Michael
