To Secure Boot or Not To Secure Boot...
I just bought a new desktop which of course had Windows 8 installed.
Just my opinion, but I don't think Windows 8 is the turd it's made out
be. I loaded Classic Shell to get the start menu back and it's
basically back to normal Windows--except that they've taken away Aero
and everything looks like Windows 3.1 again.
Regardless, after doing a lot of reading about Secure Boot and the
associated problems I wanted to try to dual boot Win 8 with Kubuntu.
I never got out of the gate. For some reason I can't get Kubuntu 13.04
to boot from usb or cd with secure ...Dual Boot XP Suse
I need some help with Dualboot system. I've got 3 hard drives in my
computer 2 SATA and one ATA. I'm running WinXP on one of the SATA
drives, the other one is just used for storing files. Since yesterday
I'm running OpenSUSE 11.0 on the ATA drive. I installed Suse correctly
over normal way not in the WinXP environment. Everything works fine.
Then I restarted the computer to see if the Boot partitions would run
correctly. Grub loader starts. OpenSuse works just fine while WinXp is
not bootable anymore. Everytime I choose the WinXP boot option I get the

I am attempting to dual boot windows XP and OpenSUSE 12.1. Currently I
have both XP and OpenSUSE installed, but can only boot into Windows. I
have done the following:
- Installed Windows XP
- Resized Windows partition using GParted
- Installed OpenSUSE 12.1 using DVD image burned to a usb memory
During the install I selected for /home/ to be on its own partition.
That was the only changes I made to the automatic install.
It appears the machine is booting using the mbr instead of GRUB.
Currently I am stuck and don't know what to do. Any ideas?
...XP/Netware login security message
WHen I log onto XP machine (Netware 6.5, client 4.9sp2), 4 separate and
identical windows pop up, all labelled "Automating Security Configuration
Management". I can close the windows, and all is well; but how do I stop
the windows from coming up at all? I have used msconfig and can find
nothing calling for these windows to come up. This only happens on XP
machines. Any suggestions?
Do you have Group Policy running those tasks?...

Instead of boring everyone here, is there a web site with tips on securing a
small home network setup?
I have 3 PC's with XP Pro, XP Home, and Win2000. They are all set up to
share various resources like printers and drives.
These are connected to a cable modem behind a Linksys router/switch.

My configuration exists of Mandriva 2007 on the first hard drive of the
first IDE Channel and Windows XP on the first SATA Channel. LILO is in
the on MBR on the first drive of the first IDE channel. Open SuSE will
be going on the second drive of the first IDE channel.
How do I set it up so I can boot all three operating systems?
So if I understand you correctly, you installed lilo with Mandriva to
the IDE master and are chainloading from the lilo menu to boot Windows

I'm trying to figure out what's happening with the security settings on the
NTFS partition that I have created on my new Western Digital USB 2.0
external 120 GB hard drive on my new dual boot config. (XP and Win2K)
Win2K is on the primary partition and XP Pro is on a logical drive.
Basically, I loose the security settings for the WD partition whenever I reboot
to the other OS.
The Administrator's name is removed and replaced with an "unknown ?" face.
I have to remove it and add back in again the Admin name. Then, when I

We have just installed Novel NetWare 6.0. Previously we had 4.11 and
diskless nodes. In NETWARE 6.0; we copied the same old NET$DOS.SYS to run
all my diskless nodes using BOOT ROM. The problem is the total conventional
memory is displayed as 550Kb instead of 640Kb. If we boot the same node
using the floppy disk then it shows correctl conventional memory.
We then re-generated new NET$DOS.SYS then also the problem remains same.
After this we downloaded new netdisk6 from Novel web site and again
re-generated a new NET$DOS.SYS using the new netdisk. In this case the node

If you are familiar with NT/W2K, it has an admin option. XP Pro also
has that. MS took out the admin funtion in XP Home; it's...Boot Loader Error (dual boot with xp)
I'm new to the whole linux scene.
I thought it was time to try something new on my pc.
I've downloaded Linux openSuse11.1.
I've used all standard installation settings, except for the language
part then ;-)
All went fine, untill the last part of the installation, when it was

It said not installed, partition not found.
So I tried several times, but then after a while,i just said, do not
