  1. Yes, and it has worked perfectly on any windows / linux guest(ubuntu, fedora, opensuse, arch) i have ever used on any host operating system. Are you sure you installed the guest additions correctly?
  2. Or just change the root password to something usable through sudo passwd.
  3. I would personally just get this one since it is only $4 more, and because I have the exact model and love it. http://www.amazon.com/Wireless-Original-Al...U/ref=pd_cp_e_1
  4. Just setup squid on the adito server and tunnel the proxy.
  5. It is done with Openvpn. You could just do it with the free, open-source version of openvpn. You will get an unlimited number of clients, but configuration may be slightly tough. Openvpn-als is the easiest way to go if you just need two clients or are willing to pay for 12+ You could do a squid HTTP proxy and use Adito to route the port to clients using SSL, but that doesn't encrypt every single connection leaving the machine like Openvpn can.
  6. Okay PoZHx, most people probably don't need more than the default firewalls in the operating systems and router. But, if you are downloading somewhat sketchy software often enough, it is nice to have a good firewall to block outgoing connections, which all windows firewalls do a pretty crappy job with. A good antivirus helps aswell.
  7. That's funny, I was just playing around trying to get iso's to boot on my grub2 pendrive when I came across the site you posted. I was about to post it until I saw that you already did. I still haven't managed to get a BT4 iso to work. Comes up with an error about not being able to mount drive sda7, but I never even specified that it should mount any drives. Furthermore, I even disabled hd automounting with the nohd kernel option. Still trying to figure this one out. Anyway, got memtest, konboot, ubuntu livecd, spinrite, and avira antivirus working on the drive. BT4 is really starting to annoy me though.
  8. Yea, I used to look at that. The only problem with the Hyperdrives(at least the ones I looked at), used old, more expensive DDR ram, and the enclosure was really expensive.
  9. default 1 timeout 10 color cyan/blue white/blue title Kon-Boot map --mem /konboot.img (fd0) map --hook chainloader (fd0)+1 map (hd1) (hd0) map --hook rootnoverify (fd0) title Memtest kernel /memdisk initrd /memtestp.img title BackTrack 4 root (hd0,0) kernel /bt4/boot/vmlinux initrd /bt4/boot/initrd.gz
  10. Anyone know why grub won't look at my flash drive when looking for boot files. For some reason it looks at the main hard drive on the pc so I can't boot anything on the hard drive. Any thoughts?
  11. Anyone get errors finding files on the drives. I have the files and their names spelled out exactly as they show up on the drive, but not dice. Grub cannot find any of the files on the drive whatsoever.
  12. Yep, which means you can test them all and see which is ideal.
  13. If you want complete control over separate screens, then your best bet would be two separate computers. If you can put up with a single tuner card with dual tuners, you could watch shows on two different screens, but remote control would be difficult.
  14. Can't forget Xen / XenServer in a hyper-visor competition.
  15. The problem is, it is going to cost you 1 - 2 hundred $ for the Tuner cards. Now, you could get away with having a dual tuner card on one computer with media center, and streaming the content of one of the tuners to another computer. That would be a pain though. If you can figure out how to maximize media Center on two monitors then you are in luck.
