comment BIOS updates and flashing with new Motherboard in Linux
Is a BIOS update essential? The board I'm looking at is the MSI 785GT-E63. Alot of people say that the BIOS doesn't have alot of options. Not being someone who overclocks, is an update really important for me?

comment My power supply/motherboard nightmare
I was thinking that, but is there a concrete way of knowing if a crash was caused by CPU temp? And its not for every video, only sometimes.

comment My power supply/motherboard nightmare
Could a bad capacitor really create such erratic crashes? It seems to me like a bad capacitor would render the motherboard pretty useless. My board is an M3N78-Pro asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=DVvm9CU0G1bCC4gp

Alright I'll have to read it then. I knew that most of the time the goal of a hacker (I hate using this term to designate a malicious person, hackers are friendly) is to open a root shell. Thanks for your help.

Very cool, lots of good stuff on wikipedia from the link you gave me. I now see how data can be changed, but how does this ever allow for big bad things to happen (not like a crash, like remote logins and chances for malicious code to be executed). I think I remember seeing a talk on how the PS3 was hacked, and they used overflows to execute some of their code. How does that work exactly? I have a feeling that a big question to answer :)

comment Explorer: Remove Top Banner/Navigation
I don't think you can actually do this. Removing that banner would remove key functionalities of Explorer. So I doubt theres a way to remove it.
