  1. Well really, no it's not. "How could this happen to me?" Because your a stupid selfesh f***. He should have been asking "Why did it happen to her?". Because he was more concerned about why it happened to him clearly shows how self centered he is.
  2. It's right on their web site.
  3. So does Remote Desktop. If you are useing XP Pro it really is the best solution.
  4. Yes it is a low-spec system, only because it is running 9x. It's kind of funny how just one aspect of a really nice system can make it not as good as it could be. The OS is defecent for modern software.
  5. The first thing I thought of was "Do you in fact have an internet connection?". Are you connecting through a modem or broadband? If a modem: Is it dialing out OK? If broadband: Is the nic setup right?
  6. At the "Run" box type in "control userpasswords2". Then check the box that says "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer".
  7. Why not just download a new evalution that has SP1 in it?
  8. @mattofak I have never seen the results you are describing. In fact, Microsoft has went to great lengths to be sure what you say you are doing is not possible. Sorry, I just don’t see it.
  9. If you install an OEM version using a VLK key you will still have to activate it. The key is not what determens wheather or not your copy requires activation. That is if it really is possable to use a VLK on a OEM disk. I could be wrong but my experinces has proved that it is not possable with out changing the PID in the SETUP.INI file. And that doesn't get around the oobe part which is were the activation takes place. There are 7 differenct types of keys: Home Retail, Home Upgrade, Home OEM, Pro Retail, Pro Upgrade, Pro OEM, and Pro VLK. None are interchangalbe with each other. Just do it right and activate your OEM copys the proper way.
  10. Go to "Manage Your Server" and choose "Add or Remove roles". That's the easy way, the other way is to disable those services.
  11. Did you check to see if Remote Desktop was still turned on at the server? BTW, Terminal Services and Remote Desktop work the same, ie... same port, same protocal and so on. If RD doesn't work, neither will TS. Some of the differences are: RD requires you to be an admin, TS does not. RD will only allow 2 connections, TS will allow as many connections as you have licenses for. You do not need to download anything from Microsoft to get TS working, but you will have to buy TS CAL's. Now that I think of it, are you tring to log in useing an admin account or a user account?
  12. OEM and retail use different numbers. So if you are installing from an OEM CD, use the OEM number. If you are installing from a retail CD, use the number that came with the retail CD. It sounds like you are tring to install from a retail CD because you don't have an OEM CD. Is that right? If so, just use the key that came with your retail CD.
  13. I would bet you have bad memory. Run memtest86 and see if there are any errors.
  14. 80,000 entries is a lot of entries. Why haven't you installed SP2? I have never had that kind of problem with a hosts file but I have never had one that large. Have you checked for spyware/virus?
  15. I can't believe that people care more about what it looks like then what it does. My decision to upgrade will be based on what it can do for me, not what it looks like.
  16. For the 98 box you will want to use VNC like graysky suggested. Or if the 98 box has enough horse power to run XP, put XP on that box.
  17. If it's XP Home, there is no RDP. It's one of the extra fetures you get with XP Pro.
  18. It's not daveybluenose's post they are talking about, it's smercer's post that has the offensive stuff.
  19. Yes it is true that Windows Server 2003 was not meant to play games on. Why people continually try to put a square peg in a round hole is beyond me.
  20. BTW, Remote Desktop IS encrypted and it is the defacto of the corprate world. You CAN map the drives and printers with Remote Desktop making transfering files and useing printers very easy. If you are useing XP home then your only "Out of the Box" choice is Remote Assistance. I haven't used it so I don't know if it is encrypted or can share drives. If you have XP Pro then you have Remote Desktop that does encrypt the connection and you can share drives and printers. To set it up just: Right click on "My Computer" Choose Properties Click on the "Remote" tab Check the "Enable Remote Desktop on this computer" box That's it for that computer. Now if you have a router on that connection (and you should) you will need to forward port 3389 to that computer. Now at your end: Click on "Start > accesories > comunications > remote desktop connection" Type in the IP of the remote computer and choose whatever other options you may want. Click on "Connect" Any flavor of VNC is only better if the host operating system does not support a remote desktop connection. You can get a Remote Desktop client for just about any OS.
  21. You go to however you registered your domain with and from there you point your A record to your internet IP address. Then at your router you will need to forward port 80 and what ever other ports you may need to your servers internal IP address.
  22. It will/can never happen with the 9x kernel. But NT4 supports SMP. I know because I have a bp6 dual proc board running NT4. NT3x might even support SMP but I'm not sure.
  23. O Yes it is. I do it all the time for testing and never had an issue. Is the machine overclocked? I've seen overclocking produce errors like this before.
  24. Like I said, "If you mess with 9X on your own box for your own enjoyment, that’s a different story". I make a living working on computers and the people who can't afford to buy XP also can't aford to pay me to work on their computer. To say "XP sucks" is only an opinion. My opinion is that XP is the best desktop OS Microsoft has made to date.
