  1. Assuming the last 'next' member is zero: void print_list(sItem* head) { for( ; head; head=head->next ) { printf( "%d\n", head->data ); } }
  2. No, it's the nature of a NAT router. An open port is a port where some service is running, on which can be connected. The router doesn't run any services on the outside, so all ports are closed. And because it costs less CPU power to ignore the 'knocking on the door' than yelling 'nobody home', the closed ports are stealth too. When you want an open port, you'll have to forward it manually in the router's setup (or use uPnP, but that's another story), to point to a service which is running on one of your computers. Because the NAT router already blocks all incoming traffic by nature, the purpose of a firewall on a NAT router is limited. The following options could be implemented: - Detect a portscan and close all open ports temporary - Block outgoing traffic to certain ip-addresses/URL's - Block ingoing traffic to open ports from certain ip-addresses - Deep packet inspection to filter active-X components and stuff like that - ... A good firewall hardly uses any resources (as long as it doesn't do deep packet inspections) compared to antivirus software, and can provide you a lot of information about which processes are talking to whom. So it can be useful to keep a software firewall running. Indeed. It are unrelated areas.
  3. According to this your modem is a 6100F. So maybe you can find a manual here.
  4. It's quite easy to find out if your modem is actually a router. When the IP address which shows up on Gibson's site (or on www.whatismyip.com) is a different one then that what shows up in winipcfg (98) or ipconfig (Vista), than it's a router. What type of modem do you have?
  5. Any router will do, they just 'talk Ethernet', and any OS which supports Ethernet will just work. I *think* there is already a router in your modem, else you should have 4 public IP addresses. That is not impossible, but only rare.
  6. You don't format with fdisk, only partition it. So you still have to format the partition. Rightclick on D: and choose 'Format disk'.
  7. ClamWin still supports W98, and AFAIK there are no plans to stop the support.
  8. Did you get the driver from Lenovo?
  9. Everest has always worked fine for me.
  10. I don't think so. This is the output of dmesg after inserting: and this the output of fdisk -l: mount:
  11. What do you want to know? It's this device. When you think it can help you to Support the Community, pm me your address, and I will send it to you. (I just connected it, and saw I was mistaken. It has a 2k sectorsize)
  12. How is the partition table organized? The original IBM partitiontable is not usable, is it? Is there another way to define a partition on an internal (boot) harddisk? Why not? I'm under the impression that the default partition table is depends on a 512 byte sectorsize. Wouldn't is be more elegant to increase the sectorsize, instead of splitting the drive? AFAIK the sectorsize doesn't need to be 512 bytes, and since FAT32 creates clusters of at least 4kB, sectors could get this size without any penalty.
  13. Do you have access to the target directory? First thing which comes in my mind is using tar or zip or maybe even lfnbk to preserve the long filename, and restore it on the target position. You did put quotes around the filename, didn't you?
  14. Maybe it's the colordepth? I vaguely remember that I have had problems with some VNC (don't rememeber if it was UltraVNC) which didn't support 24 bit truecolor, while it did 32 bit, or vice versa. The solution on that particular system was the use of 8 bit color.
  15. How is the partition table organized? The original IBM partitiontable is not usable, is it? Is there another way to define a partition on an internal (boot) harddisk?
  16. VB is hard to read for me, but I *think* you have to pass pt ByRef. In C it should have to be a pointer to the struct.
  17. Yes, after applying mkswap. But I don't know what Windows will do with the -now Linux- swapfile. No. Different distro's can use different ways to boot. But in many cases you can add the commands to /etc/rc.local or /etc/rc.d/rc.local
  18. UltraVNC supports filetransfer, clipboard operations, works on slow connections, but I don't know if it runs on W9x/
  19. Too bad! According to my MSFN library (April 2001) this function is not even available in W98, but it runs fine. It seems there is a dummy function available. I hexedited opera.exe (10.51) to load OpenThreadToken() instead, which should always return FALSE, due to a wrong handle type.This edited version still runs fine on my W98SE system, which indicates the function is not really needed. You could try it, if you want: Link
  20. Did you try the Classic Installer?
  21. It is not, or hardly, possible to put a Windows swapfile on a Linux swappartition, because it doesn't contain a filesystem. However, it is possible to use a file as swapspace for Linux. You'll have to add some commands to the Linux startscript, something like mount /dev/hda5 /mnt/hda5 mkswap /mnt/hda5/pagefile.sys swapon /mnt/hda5/pagefile.sysI don't know which Windows will do with a swapfile which is used this way.
  22. All operating systems? Abiword is available for MS Windows 95 and newer, GNU/Linux, BSD, Solaris (2.6, 7,8,9,10), AIX, HP/UX (10.20, 11.0), OSF/1, Tru64, Mac OS X 10.2 and later, QNX and BeOS. This is an impressive list, but I can easily designate some OSses which are not supported.
  23. Hello: According to the Opera web site ( http://www.opera.com...rt/kb/view/386/ ), the systems requirements for the current version of Opera (v10.10) is Windows 2000 minimum and at least Windows XP recommended. So while Opera may function on Win 98/ME, it's not officially supported. The recommendation of Opera is to use an older version of Opera (such as v9.64) for older systems. Cheers, Jerry Yeah right. The recommendation of Microsoft is to stop using W98, and use W7 instead. A recommendation which I also don't follow.
