Well today it has been raining all day, so no skating, and I had to get the driving shaft in my car fixed yesterday, soo no money. So I thought Hmm, maybe do some homework? :P which I thought was a good idea.

At tafe we have started to go onto Windows Server 2008, because 2003 is going to be phased out so yeah.

We have done active directory and file sharing with group policies etc etc, because it is the same as 2003, nothing has really changed with the active directory,...

Lame- Dictionary

Posted 09-11-2009 at 07:59 AM by jevans001

[I am newbie]

Installing Slackware 12.2 On An Old Dell Laptop - Part IVa

Posted 09-10-2009 at 03:18 PM by stuartd

A friend found a suitable power supply. So the laptop is up and running again.
I haven't done any more than hunt around on the 'net, in forums and news groups, and read Slackbook and more from Absolute BSD. All very useful stuff but I haven't found an answer that satisfies my need to understand what's going on.
I could simply ask on the forums what files I need to edit and how, but that wouldn't be entirely satisfactory unless it came with an explanation of what's going on.
