  1. Yes could can install vista from a 4gb thumb drive. You have to make sure your iso doesn't go over that limit when repackaged. diskpart (note this must be done with Vista's diskpart,its version 6.01..., not XP's, version 5.0...) but once you do thumbdrive prep with a Vista diskpart the instructions do work. I think HP also has a tool to make your thumb drive bootable if your working of a XP machine but I have not used it. select disk 1 clean create partition primary select partition 1 active format fs=fat32 assign exit Copy Windows Vista's DVD ROM content to the Flash Drive Simply issue the following command to start copying all the content from the Windows Vista DVD to your newly formatted high speed flash drive. xcopy d:\*.* /s/e/f e:\
  2. I know for directories you would just use asterisk. Example CD C:\prog* COPY D:\AAW\*.* C:\prog*\aaw Something like that you are looking for?
  3. Your not "obilgated" to buy windows....You can use linux/unix but you would have to learn how to use that software just like "learning" windows. Its a gray line but I agree that sometimes people do need to pirate software to try it and make sure it suit your needs then buy if it does. The laziness of I can't afford is not an excuse to pirate the software there though use alternative software that does the samething, catch is most people are too lazy to learn a "new" piece of software. If kinda the car example that was given. You don't see me going to a restaruant and not paying my bill cause even though I love the food there I can't afford it.
  4. Here is what I am trying to do. Windows NT/2000 enviroment. Its mostly 2000 till the NT servers get converted to 2000 file servers. I know this script below will enumerate mapped drives. Set WshNetwork = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network") Set oDrives = WshNetwork.EnumNetworkDrives For i = 0 to oDrives.Count - 1 Step 2 ''WScript.Echo "Drive " & oDrives.Item(i) & " = " & oDrives.Item(i+1) Next WScript.Echo and the map script is Set WshNetwork = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network") WshNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "E:", "\\Server\FolderName" So my end result is I want it check for mapped drives and if it finds them remap with the user choosing the drive letter since we have over 30+possible folder names that could be mapped otherwise I would map it to a particular drive all the time. But I do need to exclude M drive though since its global and will always be there for user for storage/backup of files.
  5. Fedora if you want lastest Linux, really depends on what your looking for. Fedora comes with a ton of software with it. If you want a slim/small distro slackware or debian is the route you might want to take. There are what called Live CDs for Linux. Basically Linux on a CD so you can try it before installing it. Hope that helps ya.
