thanks for the reply,

another [connected] question..

is there a method for getting kismet to start new logfiles each time the channel is changed?

I'm using it with a wrt54g and want to look at data logged from each channel, so unless i can do it like this then i'll have to use expect or autoexpect or an other tool of the same type to attempt to change channel and restart kismet on each change; obviously i'd rather just have kismet write a new file for each channel.
