windows ME questions, questions, questions.......
my next PC will be running Windows ME. The PC will be supplied via my work,
so there's no choice here for me (ME?) (I think I would have preferred 98
SE). The harddisk (40GB matrox) will have ME installed, and both the Windows
ME set-up files and an image of the initial Harddisk 'on a hidden
partition'. Word has it that this partition is not seen by Format nor FDisk.
Is this really possible?
No Windows CD will be supplied. Seems a new way of MS to encourage working
with licensed software only.
Anyone familiar with this way of distributing an OS?

Judging by the number of cracked editions I find when I google
for "Windows XP Professional Corporate", my guess is that you
don't need to activate it (though I am sure there are other

I have a friend who is considering make the move to XP but he would like to
review privacy concerns with XP. I have searched for sites pertaining to
this matter but most are from 2001. I would like to provide him with some
more recent updated sites for him to read. Would anyone happen to have
links to sites of this nature?

I just did a clean install of Windows XP Home edition, I am running Sygate
Pro 5.0 firewall on a cable modem. My stupid question is to the computer
gods: When I reboot the machine it comes up to the account window, which I
have 2, if I do not click on them and leave my machine say over night is my
machine vulnerable to an attack? I am not that familiar with the NTFS or NT
systems and would like some guidance on this issue. Also are there any other
precautions I should take with this system? I have looked and can't figure
out if the GRC recommendation for binding everything to Netbui...M$ Office XP and Windows XP 'error reporting' a risk to Privacy.

...Question on utility NWADMIN for NetWare 4.0 which are compatible with Windows 2000 Pro Windows XP Pro
On a file server it is established NetWare 4.0. Earlier management
this server was carried out by means of utility NWADMIN95 which is
established on the computer with Windows 98SE and Client32.
Now there is a question of installation on all computers Windows
Pro and Windows XP Pro.
Thus on official site Novell.com i have found utilities NWADMIN and
Client32 only for NetWare 5.0 and later versions. Though these
are compatible with Windows 2000/XP Pro, these utilities are
with Netware 4.0.

What seems to be a reasonable step is to declare that Windows XP SP2
is the lowest supported version of Windows. Older versions will not
be blocked from working based on current plans, but are considered
What Unsupported Means:
* No tinderbox coverage
* No QA coverage
* No unit test or talos performance coverage
* Bugs only affecting these platforms will not be considered as
blocking any release 1.9.2 or later.

After installing the XP RC2 build, i was playing around with the new cool
settings and what not.
During this time, i double clicked on the clock on the bottom right corner
of my task bar and noticed there was a new tab for the Date and Time
properties called " Internet Time. " What this " utility " does is it "
Automatically synchronize with an Internet Time server. " Neat huh ?
The only thing that bugs me is that this option is enabled by default, and
that the server it connects to is time.windows.com. It may not be a big
deal, but what if I didn'...Windows XP Privacy Issue

On our Windows XP Professional SP1 Client 4.91 we have it that the
workstation only checkbox appears at the Novell login so that a user can
login locally by checking off the box or the user can login in to the
network by making sure the checkbox is unchecked and logging in with
their user name and password.
There are several settings under the Advanced Login for the Novell Client
for Windows Properties. 1) Workstation Only (we leave this on so that
checkbox shows up at the Novell login), 2)Workstation Only Default,
