comment Firefox addon for managing text width
Great! I'm glad I could point you to an awesome addon! It really is powerful, and there are a lot of scripts already out there for you to browse at userscripts.org

comment Is it possible to “stealth” dual boot a machine?
I do like this idea... too risky in this situation, but very nice idea!

Since it is not as easy as "plug in a new OS" then yes, you are right, I should not mess with their system.

comment Is it possible to “stealth” dual boot a machine?
Before I started looking at this, I was imagining something as easy as plugging in an external hard drive that had a separate OS on it, and booting into that OS. I don't even want/need to see what is on the other harddrive/OS, and I'm not trying to get around their security. I just thought that if I had the laptop, I could use it for 2 different purposes - one for classwork, and one for personal use. If I was booting to and modifying my own OS, and it could be "undone" by simply unplugging a USB cable, nothing has changed on the original machine... I wasn't trying to do anything sinister..

There just doesn't seem to be a non-intrusive way to do this, so I think this is the best answer... Thanks!

comment Is it possible to “stealth” dual boot a machine?
I was searching Amazon for the expansion hard drive, and here is one of the comments on the product page: "I use this drive to run my old copy of Windows XP, and the internal drive to run Windows 7. You can hit F7/F9 during boot-up to select which drive to boot from. No issue booting from this." That looks like exactly what I want...
