OK, so apparently this change doesn't stick after a reboot.  What's
the best way to handle this; put the 'echo' command in rc.local, or is
there a better way?  Since this isn't a once and done change I'm now a
bit more curious about what's going on here.  Is this change specific
to Fedora 14?  Is it a lirc change, a kernel change, both?  I have no
problem using the 'echo' command, but seems like this could be a bit
of an issue for some.

Thanks again,
