  1. I have a wrt54g linksys and I never see my password in the address bar.

    i'd think it'd be extremely difficult to get that info, only because you'd a) have to get into the router to change the password, or B) be on the inside and look at that browser's history to find that page

    just my .02

    maybe linksys has some updated firmware for that router if it's an issue

  2. what he's saying is have the snapshot program you're going to use take a snapshot of your system prior to installing either macromedia or adobe software. then install the macromedia/adobe, and go back to the snapshot software and have it build an executable that makes the same system changes that both the adobe and macromedia did.

    That's all there is. If you are going to use norton autoinstall, the steps htc provided would be how you would go about doing it.

  3. I have to agree totally with the getting passed around to 5 departments because it happened to me, and I wasn't even calling as a customer. I do support for another company who sells to dell, and I was calling on behalf of one of my customers to find out if they had a certain product in stock that they could ship my customer. I never did actually find out because there was no one there who knew.

    dell is riding on their reputation now, and it's gonna be really tough for any other builder to break that, no matter how bad their service was.

    To be honest, I never owned a Dell because I knew too many people who did, and weren't happy when it broke

  4. in case it's still unclear (b/c it was to me at first), basically those programs (autoinstall, installwatch, etc..) monitor an installation of your program and note all the changes that happen in the computer and it can build a custom executable for that, so it can install the program. It is similar to building an MST file for office, but in another way.

    i.e. you start auto install, then run the studio MX setup. It notes everything that is happening, and once the install is complete, you should be able to build a custom executable to run that will re-create those changes on a different machine.

    hope that helps

  5. there's nothing "built in" to runonce that would automatically flush your temp directory that i'm aware of, though to be honest, i don't use runonce, so I'm not 100% sure. I would have to digress to the members that have more knowledge on that than I.

    Have you found that the temp directories are filled with files during/after an install?

    good luck.

  6. if you are just adding office 2k3 to your windows XP installation, then you would have to follow the unattended setup instructions, and see how to call a batch file, and how the setup works. it's not too difficult once you get going.

    you'd have to edit your winnt.sif file (in the I386 folder) to call what is in section 2 of the link you provided at a minimum.

    sixpack jumped right to the batch files, but if you don't really have any prior knowledge, then i'd read everything here:


  7. it depends on which temp folders you are referring too... if you are talking the user's temp dir, it would be (for XP)

    %systemdrive%\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Temp

    but generally speaking, that folder should be pretty empty to start off. If you are talking about your specific folders you used during installation of your programs, you could put the following code in your cmd file

    RD /S /Q %systemdrive%\setup\applications

    just continue on that idea for all the folders you need to delete. Obviously anything contained in the "applications" folder in my example would be deleted

    hope that helped

  8. I actually have the same mobo that you do, and I have had success both using bashrat's and greenmachines methods for that si3112 chipset.

    In your case, I would suggest starting from the beginning w/ a new txtsetup.sif, and winnt.sif, just to make 100% sure that it wasn't a misplaced file or anything of that nature.

    A big thing w/ the txtsetup is that the end of the file marker may be invisible, so what may be happening is that the text you're adding is coming after the eof marker. Maybe find the last line of text, and just hit enter a couple times to space it out a little bit so that you know you're above the marker.

    I did run into a problem w/ bashrat's driverpack that was telling me one of the .sys files was missing, even though when i searched for it in the dir, it was there... turned out that I had multiple entries of [scsi], [scsi.load], etc.. and that was messing up the windows text mode loading the files.

    Good luck
