RE: Varying the initcmd for a console

Hi Andras,

As I understand it the conserver is started with a configuration file
conserver.cf that defines a set of consoles for various machines, output
from these machines is then logged. The conserver.cf that is read when 
conserver starts can also specified a script that is to be run when the
console command is used to connect to the machine via the initcmd

What I would like to do is to be able to specify, in some way,the script

that is executed when I make the console command, i.e. something like

	console ... "determine-free-disk-space.sh"

[above syntax obviously rubbish, but that's the idea ]

I was wondering if the initcmd could be changed via the per-user-config
file that can be specified, but didn't appear so.
