Normally you only have to do this once. The -w switch should remove  
the disabled-flag in the plist file. This means that the system bus is  
started automatically on startup (as any launch daemon) and the  
session bus is started once you login (launch agens are session  
based). As you're running Leopard, you could even enable on-demand  
loading of the session bus. Just edit the plist file (on-demand  
loading is broken in Tiger, so it's disabled by default)
