Yea, but Home edition came on my laptop and i don't want to $hell out more money to micro$oft, just for different features that i get in Linux for free.

on another note, all versions of windows 2000 and newer run on NTFS... It's the "secure" "more stable" file system. It's ok, but I'll keep running Linux...

Shan, Windows 2000/NT needs an NTFS partition to operate. FAT16/32 isn't an option.

That's not true.. I've got a PII 350 running Win2k Pro on a FAT32 partition, and it works just fine.

Hello shan did you ever do a full www.windowsupdate.com to make sure you have all the patches and updated drivers? Also doing a scandisk following a defragment of the drive usely helps in some cases.

I have Xp Pro and had this problem when I upgraded over Windows Me Bad move I quess, one day was doing fine and the next puff fixing one thing right after another until my sound card stop working all together. No matter what I did fixed it, only formatting the drive and doing a clean install of Xp fixed all the problems. I quess thinking back I just had way to many drivers that were not fit when using XP Pro. Anyway!

A warning for Xp pro users

Make sure when your not using the remote options to have them off-disabled, this is for sure not just people using a firewall and think there safe either. This is what I mean.

Goto My Computer and right click and then to Properties on bottom. Then you will see a tab >Remote when clicked you will have two options, I'm going to leave it up to you to go and read up on what it does but I have both the Remote Assistance and Remote desktop unchecked. These options are great but I feel not needed to be enabled if your not using them. This is great op;s for hackers.


Any Feedback on remote I wouldn't mind. I like to download Mp3's and more and with all the RIAA and MPAA stuff going around, It just safer at least for me to have these disabled.

Yea, the funny thing is when I installed the latetest Service Pack from Micro$oft, it happened. Oh well i'm gonna get my PCMCIA modem soon so I can just delete the XP Partition (what's left of it) and continue running Red Hat 8
