  1. Windows 7 doesn't require two partitions if you've created a partition and selected it for installation. Otherwise, it does so so that the user can use bitlocker drive encryption later without having to meet any requirements prior to setup. Diskpart can be used as well for shrinking the partition if you'd prefer this method, but you can easily accomplish the task using the gui tools during Windows 7 installation.

  2. Is this Vista or XP? Recover all of your files onto the partition and set the partition as active.

    If XP, boot from your XP disk and do a repair install.

    If Vista, boot from your Vista disk and do startup repair.

  3. Autorun files really only work like half the time. UAC might be an issue as suggested, but seeing how your having these problems in XP and Vista its your auto-run settings taking control of what actions to preform. If you install the auto-launcher from U3 settings I'm sure it'll start working as you want it to.

  4. Good job guys. Enjoyed the nmap segment for sure, and that new NAP switch looks very interesting.

    And evil server, everythings cool as long as you don't eat me :)

  5. Yeah javas a pain to start with. I can remember getting a hello world program working on its own (actually manged to compile the jar :)) awhile back but I'm much happier with .net now. Not saying I don't want to learn java, its just vb + the fact it was a class I took very seriously = got somewhere a lot faster than trying to learn on my own. This though took me a good 5-6 months and I'm still learning, so don't expect to learn it using the 1-3 week strategy.

    GL whatever path you take.

  6. It has forwarding options in its settings. You can forward faxes/calls. Not sure about sms though. I think it communicates with their servers on the numbers you provide so when its off or on all your calls should be forwarded there. If you can't find the settings or they don't work, look under the account section in t-zones to see if you can set it up that way. Don't be surprised if your bills a little more than you expect though. They might charge for it.

  7. When i say install I meant the appropriate madwifi or heck, normal drivers for the 1390 wireless card out of the box without manual configuration, not in regard to installing bt. And yes unetbootin makes it pretty straightforward to install bt to usb, except when you want to use grub instead and have it dual-booting on a flash drive with helix/pe. That was quite a project in itself.

  8. What happens in real life when you need space to work and desk top is piled up? You clean it off. As far as I'm concerned, the desktop of your computer is no different.

    And 51 icons as an option in the poll and 22 percent for it being the majority? Is that a joke? Man hackers are messy. I can't stand no more than 10 or so on mine. Usually stick to only putting the most basic applications I use there.

  9. Most friendly distros such as Ubuntu will detect Windows during the installation. Regardless of whether or not you tell it to import account settings, if it offers to, you can almost be completely sure it'll put in a Windows entry for you in grub. If you're running Vista and don't want grub as the primarly bootloader, look into using EasyBCD to set up the dual-boot.

  10. Real decent tables are usually not offered over the internet pre-computed due to thier size. If you want to really get into this, look on Ophcrack's project page where Ophcrack ships portable drives with the better tables on them for a fee. You could create your own, but it takes a lot of time and resources to do so. By a lot of time, I mean not just hours, but days, weeks, or years.
