How do I disable the modal dialog that pops up whenever appletalk becomes availalbe or no longer available?

Basically my Mac is an on-demand-dial ISDN circuit into an ethernet.  Appletalk packets do not reset the timeout on the line.  The autodial is triggered by outgoing packets.

When I sit down at the Mac in question and do an IP connect to somewhere, the Appletalk dialog shows up and I have to MANUALLY dismiss it.  I would like to prevent it from showing up to being with!

There is no way you can dismiss this dialog within regular system commands. However, try using this extension ("okey-dokey-pro"), find it at www.shareware.com at :

It will automatically click on the OK button, even with a snapshot of the dialog box. Read the instructions carefully, might be dangerous!
