I'm having trouble with the perl "system" function.  Actually system
works fine.  It's the windows 2000 server programs it runs that are
giving me fits.  When I do this:

$Status = system("uptime \\\\$MachineName > /nul");
$Status = system("if exist p:\nul net use p: /d");

For example, the uptime or net use will sometimes hang or stall.  How
can I kill these and continue without aborting the entire program?

I've looked through some of the texts regarding interprocess
communications but I'm not sure that's the way I should go.
