Hi Mihai,

 >From your example, it looks like the start_link function starts a link 
to an already running node.  I was really hoping to start an entirely 
new node programatically.  It looks like that is what the slave:start() 
function is supposed to do, but I can't call it successfully.  Any idea 
what I have to do to call slave:start()?
