Thank you for the help, but I stil have no joy with this.  I can see
that the nodes each run through the start phases.  Node 1 and node 2
both start the distributed application locally with no takeover.  It
seems that after I start the erlang node up, it does not know of the
other node yet.  If I use net_kernel:connect() no actions are
taken to move the application to the appropriate node.

Now I am wondering what exactly is needed in the bootscript and
kernel.app to make sure that two nodes talk to each other at startup so
that a distrubuted application gets distributed.

Do I need to use node_sync_mandatory to force the nodes to wait for each
other?  Or do I need to start more apps up than kernel and stdlib to get
distributed behavior?

Thanks
