I am running Mathematica 4.1 on my linux (RedHat 7.1) computer. I can start Mathematica session with no problem as a root but after turning on my computer and typing mathematica as an ordinary user I get a new mashine ID number ( different than that of the root). To get around this problem I usually open a new xterm and enter math as a root. Then I close the math session and logout as root from the x-terminal. Only now I can open mathematica as a ordinary user without Mathematica generating a new mahine ID number and without asking for a new password. I is there a way to fix this so that I can open Mathematica as a user directly whenever I turn on my computer? Otherwise, after mamy times this problem becomes a bit annoying.
