Thanks for the advice on this.  A cron Job (sounds pornographic don't 
it) did the trick.  However, I think that the original failure of 
mythfilldatabase to run automatically by selecting in myth setup is 
associated with the process of setting up myth and shepherd.  Havn't 
found a way to fix it though.

Thanks again folks
