At the moment, to start a KisMAC session, on my Powerbook G3 Series 
1999, I have to:
* Start the terminal
* do a sudo kextunload -b org.noncontiguous.WirelessDriver
* enter my password
* exit the terminal
* run the KisMAC Driver utility to start MacJack
* enter my password
* quit the driver utility
* start kismac

So my question is, as I decided that typing the kextunload line was 
too much work, and put it into a shell script file I can invoke, 
could I just do a kextload instead of running the KisMAC driver 
utility, or does it do more than one thing?  The kextload, I could 
add to the shell script as well.

And next, is there some way the preferred serial port for the GPS 
receiver could be added to the applications preferences, so that I'm 
no longer in danger of forgetting before starting out on a long 
drive?  Every time I launch the application, it's revert to irDA, 
which is never what I use.  (admittedly, the Keyspan Twin Serial I 
use can be plugged together in different ways, but I tend to set it 
up the same way each time.)
