  1. I have my cd set up with Wihu with a checklist at the end of the install for extra programs... I want to know if anyone has a way for installing individual firefox extensions.

    I have just been zipping up my profile, but I want the user to be able to pick and choose what extensions they add... is this possible?

    Also, unrelated.. is there a simple way to set firefox as the default browser? Something like small reg entry... I've searched the forums and the method I use right now seems unnecessarily envolved.

  2. Heres part of my cdshell.ini in case there's a problem with it


    print c "\cXXWelcome to Windows XP: Frankenstein Edition\n\n"


    print "F1) Install Windows XP Pro SP2 \n"

    print "\n"

    print "F2) ERD Commander 2005: Run from Hard Drive \n"

    print "F3) ERD Commander 2005: Run from Ram \n"

    print "\n"

    print "F4) Extra Utilities\n"

    print "\n"

    print "Q) Quit to Command Prompt \n"

    print "R) Reboot \n"

    print "ESC) Boot 1st Harddisk \n"

    print c "\n"

    cd menus


    getkey 20 boot 0x80

    if $lastKey == key[f1]; then chain /boot.bin

    if $lastKey == key[f2]; then chain /ERD1.DAT

    if $lastKey == key[f3]; then chain /ERD2.DAT

    if $lastKey == key[f4]; then script main.scn

    if $lastKey == key[q]; then end

    if $lastKey == key[r]; then reboot

    if $lastKey == key[esc]; then boot 0x80

  3. Well I've followed all the instructions by flyakite and am using the recent CDShell release

    Everything else has gone fine, except for ERD Commander. It always tries to install XP from my i386 folder instead of ERD from the ERDC folder. I have followed flyakite's instructions to a T... has anyone else experienced similar problems?

  4. I'm looking to minimalize xp by replacing some of it's built in tools with less bloated ones. I'm thinking I will use litestep as the shell and explorerxp as a file manager.

    But both are almost as consumptive as their MS counterparts. Does anyone have a favorite small file manager or other anything else they've replaced standard ms components for?

    I mean if I have them both running it can take up even more resources than just running one explorer process (it doubling as my shell and file manager).

    Is this a fruitless endevor or is there a real way to come out on top by going with ms alternatives?

  5. Ok, I tried running the application as the shell, which was a fantastic idea. The problem is that I have the program set to shutdown the computer on exit. When it exists, windows immediately tries to run the program again and I get an error message saying windows can't start that process because it is shutting down.

    This has never been a problem except now when i run the program as a shell. Is there any way around this?

  6. I know how to replace strings with a hex editor, but how would I go about changing what key is pressed for an action to take place (for example, instead of pressing f1 for help, you press the h key).

    It's just a simple keystroke substitution.. is this possible?

  7. i'm using resource hacker to change the icons on some exe files, but they always end up looking Way crappier / grainier than the standard icons.

    They look ok when i make them, but as they get scaled around (whether i'm viewing the exe as thumbs or on the desktop on in a folder) they look crap.

    what am i doing wrong? how can i make icons look like quality?

  8. i've been using foxit for a little while now and i must say i TOTALLY disagree with what you guys are saying about it. It's not bloated out, runs and opens very fast, and doesn't have to be installed, just extracted and executed.

    all huge bonuses and 1/10 the size of adobe's reader. I rarely search a pdf so that isn't really a drawback for me though.

  9. for me, xp usually takes up about 50 megs of ram right after an install... but I just nlited a new cd to slim it down even more and it has jumped up to 80+ megs because of multiple svchosts running taking up 10+ ram apiece.

    I know its a windows system process and that I need it and all that, but why is it suddenly doing this and is there any way I can scale it back?
