The PC is an AMD64 3700+ just for reference. I am logged into the machine
via VNC from work at the moment and I ran the command you mentioned and here
is the output:

kevin 25473 93.3 10.2 162500 106668 pts/2 RNl+ Feb18 986:39
/usr/local/bin/mythcommflag -j 1 -v 3
kevin 23313 0.0   0.0   2804      753    pts/3  R+   15:07   0:00   grep

That's it. I am learning tons about Unix/Linux as I go but I am still a newb
and don't know all the little things. I recently switched my desktop over to
Linux as well so i am learning tons with tons more to learn.

Does the above tell you anything?
