Hi,
        I have two machines running  Ultrix 4.3  when Root trys to do a
"rdump" command it gives me "Requires secure terminal"      
How can I get this around....

this is my /etc/ttys file They are same on both system
--------

#
#
#
# name  getty           type            status          comments
#
console "/etc/getty std.9600" vt300   on secure nomodem      console
tty00   "/etc/getty std.19200" dumb   off secure nomodem      #hplj
tty02   "/etc/getty std.9600" vt200   on secure nomodem       #LAT
tty03   "/etc/getty std.9600" vt200   on secure nomodem       #LAT

1. Why doesn't echo "text" 'command' "more text" work?

                 ^                                        ^
Wrong quotes, should be -
   echo "You have" `grep Subject: /usr/spool/mail/me | wc -l` "messages."
or -
   echo "You have `grep Subject: /usr/spool/mail/me | wc -l` messages."

But, another problem is, if you've no mail, /usr/spool/mail/me does not
exist, leading grep to say:
   grep: can't open /usr/spool/mail/me
Wc will still report 0.

You might try -
   sh -c 'echo "You have `grep 2>/dev/null Subject: /usr/spool/mail/me | wc -l` messages."'

Hope this helps.
