     Well, if it were xterm, you could do this useing the '-e' flag and 
     passing the name of the script to it like: 
     'xterm -e scriptname&'  
     rxvt must have a similar flag mentioned in its man page.

Hello list members
I have a quick question....  Im using a script to start a aplication in 
gnome.... however Im not realy fond of gnomes default terminal (I cant 
scrole up to see any text in  the terminal).  Is there a way to have a 
script call up a rxvt and then pass the scripts comands off to it?
