Thanks!  That did it.  I went looking all over for a Win98 "pif" editor
without ever realizing that creating a shortcut actually created one of
those files.  <sigh>


I'm still curious where my machine stores the information when I adjust
the properties on the batch file directly.  It is persistant and I don't
see any other files created.

I haven't tried rebooting... perhaps it's memory-resident only.
