Just a few questions that concern me (perhaps for no reason).

1)  Why does the kernal stay at secure level -1.   I replaced BSDi 2.0.1
    with FreeBSD 2.0.5 and BSDi always defaulted to security of 1 while
    FreeBSD does not.

2)  If i manually set kern.securelevel to 1, XFree86 no longer works
    complaining about lack of access to /dev/mem.  I used XFree86  
    with BSDi and it worked fine.  Anyone have a suggestion?

3)  All of the maintenance scripts run fine sending e-mail to root.  Problem
    is, I'm not running them from cron.  In fact I have no idea what is
    starting up these scripts at all.  I'd actually prefer not to run them
    on my home system, but would like to have control over these things.
    So what starts them????
