also beware that HP is notorious for bundling excessive amounts of software with the downloads. One package I encountered was nearly 500mb for drivers and full suite.

comment Bypassing a proxy
Bear in mind school filtering systems can be quite sophisticated and can still log activity and produce screenshots, so maybe if you want to check your facebook, I suggest doing it on your phone or waiting until you get home ;) Also depends on the SysAdmin's view of proxy useage.

comment how to let a windows machine not discoverable on a network?
afraid not, I was under the impression that TweakUI would have done what you wanted. Seems to be more interface-only though (hence the name). Try Casual Coders answer.

comment What is the recommended Mac desktop VM software for Linux guests?
I'll give a +1 for Virtualbox. Give it a go to start with (after all, it is free) and it doesn't meet your needs have a look at Parallels.

I had found that particular table and was wondering if there was anything along the lines of that on the MS site, a la what you provided for me for Server 2008 Comparison. Thanks, though.

comment XP to Windows 7 upgrade, WITHOUT reinstalling stuff
As far as I know it depends on the version of windows 7 you are installing but not having done an upgrade as I prefer a clean install I can't really give you more than that.

comment Windows 7, weird/annoying explorer problem
I've noticed this on a few occasions but I've not really bothered to do anything about it as it's not a huge worry for me. I'd be interested in a fax though.
