comment Good, lightweight GUI-based process monitor for Linux
@MahmoudAl-Qudsi Yes, htop can kill a process. I got confused with top - however, concerning the word GUI - you keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

@Grawity I got confuzzled between top and htop

comment Good, lightweight GUI-based process monitor for Linux
-1 for pointless soapboxing. +1 for offering a different option. -1 for that option not doing what the OP wanted (integrated ablity to kill processes)

comment Windows won't release lock on drive tray after burning a disc
Knowing that you changed from IDE to RAID intrigues me. I'm now suspicious that perhaps Windows is not properly interfacing with the ATAPI CD-Drive. Switching from IDE to RAID/AHCI could have caused issues with the Windows drivers for ATAPI.

I doubt that would make a difference, however changing to AHCI will break your RAID set, so don't do that unless you're prepared for data loss. It will also require some changes to Windows. Search around for RAID-to-AHCI information such as: answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-hardware/…

@sidran32 In my understanding, no, those things aren't necessarily OS agnostic. The chipsets still need to be interacted with by the OS, so the OS is still a variable factor. Perhaps Windows needs the hardware layer to have updated firmware for it to more properly interact with it. The Linux OS you tried may have been capable of interfacing with the chipset in its current state as opposed to Windows.

comment Should one keep their old graphics card installed in addition to their new?
You can't SLI different NVidia graphics cards. From Nvidia's website: Can I mix and match graphics cards that have different GPUs? No. For example, an XXXGT cannot be paired with a XXXGTX in an SLI configuration. Unless you're suggesting that he keep the one card in addition to an already existing SLI configuration?

comment Two SSIDs on one router
@Levy Yes, multiple SSIDs can exist on the same radio / channel and each network is separate, not allowing clients on one to talk to clients on the other. That is a common behavior of corporate wireless networks. At one place of work, we maintained about three to five separate wireless networks all on the same WAPs for our point of sale system.

comment Difference between x86_64 vs i386 iso files
@Mike In linux run grep flags /proc/cpuinfo and see if lm is in the list. lm mean "long mode" and implies a 64-bit CPU. Real mode means 16 bit and Protected Mode means 32-bit.

comment Difference between x86_64 vs i386 iso files
@Mike Find out what CPU you have and then search its model online. Most hardware manufactured since the mid-2000s should be 64-bit.

@wowpatrick I think it would work to your advantage to make a whole new question since that's completely different than the question posted above. Try the Ubuntu Stack Exchange site: askubuntu.com

comment How to telnet to find all computer name in a network?
@KMC What you describe of McAfee's bahavior is the same thing that Zenmap can do. Something is preventing Zenmap from behaving correctly. Perhaps it's not being run under the proper credentials or a firewall is blocking it.

comment Remote Office IP Privacy on Personal Computer
@John You're correct: no matter what device you use, as long as the traffic passes through the router, there is the potential for the traffic to be reported to your employer. I don't know if they do, however it's possible. They would be able to see the hardware MAC address of the devices, and could take into account the difference between the work machine and a personal machine. However, all of this is speculation. Just assume that all traffic is monitored regardless of device. That's certainly the easier way to do it from your employer's perspective, so assume that's what they do.

comment How do I fix boot.ini without a CD drive?
Is XP booting on the USB drive or did you install it on a local hard drive from a USB drive?
