Can you say what it is that you need to do when connecting to this outside source? Maybe there's a way you can do it in Linux without them knowing it's a Linux box that's connecting to it.
Seems like such a waste to have to install a whole crummy OS (and pay through the ass for it's crummier license and all the other add-on software you'll need to run any apps) for this. But sometimes you just have to bite the bullet.
Anyway, that BIOS setting you mentioned sounds like it could work...I'd try it....just make a note of what you changed in case it doesn't work.
