Problems with Init.m

Hallo,

in the appendix you see the contend of my Init.m file.

For example, I define there the ShowStatus statement:

ShowStatus[status_] := LinkWrite[$ParentLink, 
SetNotebookStatusLine[FrontEnd`EvaluationNotebook[], ToString[status]]];

But it does not work like I think.

At the startup I see the message windows, where the print statements are 
displayed, but not in my notebook, where the first order is executed.

Also the test evaluation of the "ShowStatus["Mathematica 5.1.1"];" is 
displayed in the status line of  the message window, not in the notebook 
status line, where it is intended to be displayed.

And ??ShowStatus says:

Information::"not found":"Symbol \!\(\"ShowStatus\"\) not found. \
\!\(\*ButtonBox[\"Mehr\[Ellipsis]\", ButtonStyle->\"RefGuideLinkText\", \
ButtonFrame->None, ButtonData:>\"General::notfound\"]\)"

Where lays the error?
Kind regards

Peter Klamser
