Cross-Platform Problems and Opening Windows at Startup

Hi. Please don't hesitate to answer any or all of the following
questions:

I've have several reflectors, both White Pine and Cornell
varieties, and several Windows and Macintosh machines running
Enhanced CU-SeeMe. I've been launching CU-SeeMe with a connection
to a reflector by running a .cu file off a web page.

I've been wondering if there's any way that, when CU-SeeMe
launches, it can start out displaying certain windows. Right now,
the Macintosh versions start out with the audio window on the
screen, and the PC versions start out with only the main window. I
want the application to start with audio and whiteboard. Is there
any way to do this?

Also, is there any way to continue a whiteboard session when
the initiator leaves the conference? I figure I can have one "dummy
user" initiate the whiteboard and always stay on, wven when others
leave.

The last, and perhaps most important problem is that I've
been having trouble getting audio to actually come out of the
speakers of the machines. The PCs have been sounding audio when the
Macintoshes send it, but the Macintoshes haven't been sounding when
the PCs send, even though the green volume bar shows up fine. (I am
pushing to talk and all. I'm not sure why the PCs have the PTT
button disabled. Is it because their sound cards (SB16) are
half-duplex?)

Well, thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
