comment Looking for help getting Samba server up and running off a Knoppix live CD to rescue files off a WinXP box
Wow, thanks for the very full reply. Taking the hard disk out is an option I was just avoiding that it I could copy via the network instead. I'll give Ubuntu a go first if only for the learning experience ;-) otherwise I'll go brute force and pull the disk out.

comment How I can provide list of the file in my directory?
@Joey - true, but @rima had 2 problems... one was directories, the other was the semi-colon. Glad you had a solution for that though ;-)

comment How do I permanently remove all the sites in IE's Restricted Zone that SpyBot S&D added?
Unfortunately this didn't help me out... after "undoing", and before/after a clean boot I still had the restricted zone list.

@aking1012 - unfortunately it has been proven to majorly affect the performance, more importantly I don't want to debate it ;-) I just want to remove all items from the list.

@iceman - not sure... but since I have at least 1 of the above browsers installed on every PC I have, I just use the browser.

comment iTunes Home Sharing only works one way between 2 Windows XP PC's on the same LAN
understood - iTunes at both ends is definitely alive and interactive. AFAIK, there is nothing blocking port 3689. I simply can't connect 1 way. All music is DRM free mp3's, both accounts are authorized on both sides. AFAIK I only have the windows firewall, and my router firewall.

comment ATI Catalyst setting to stretch Windows XP start bar across both displays
Tried MultiMon above - works for the most part with a few issues. WinKey+M doesn't minimize on the 2nd monitor, and Right-Click -> Close on the 2nd taskbar doesn't always work, nor does the mouseover on the time to get a today's date tooltip. Gonna try some of the other ones too.
