Starting aterm on a specific desktop

I've been trying to come up with a way to start several aterms
simultaneously on a specific desktop and a specific 'pane' on that
desktop.  I've had a couple of thoughts, but they were all caveman like
in nature.  

I find myself everytime I start X opening several aterms doing the same
commands each time.  For instance:

	Start aterm. 'tail -f /var/log/messages'
	Start another aterm. 'tail -f /var/log/secure'
	Start another aterm. 'elm'

Seems like each time I start X I do some of the same things over.  Is
there a better way to handle this with AfterStep ?

Another question.  I know you can use "Style	"Netscape"	StartsOnDesk 2"
in the database file.  But can you direct Netscape to start in a
particular 'pane' on that desktop ?

TIA,
Mike
