Oh,  Here's what you do.

You set up the program in windows and then when the pc starts, it runs in 
the back ground.  I doubt you can do it in dos either.

Thanks Janina--and-David.  First of all, Janina, in windows its my d drive, 
in Linux its hdb  and I was getting thousands of io errors from that drive.
Now David, while GRC claims many operating systems can use spinrite, they 
don't say how to run the program from linux, if we even can.
