comment PureFTPd is using ports above 50000 even with PassivePortRange specified
Ahh!! Thank you. The problem was that I happened to be connecting from another server with similar port-range restrictions, so I was getting error messages like "Could not open data connection to port 59111: Connection timed out" - and thinking this was referring to the server port, but it was actually referring to the client port. So the answer for my situation (connecting from a client with a limited port-range open), is to use passive ftp! :)

comment How can I repair Windows Vista after installing Windows XP on an external drive?
Well it's hard to say what really did the trick, but I tried installing Windows XP on a secondary internal drive so I could get EasyBCD running, which, after much labor, I did (had to get connected to the internet before it would install itself), and then I accidentally deleted the bootloader options (by pressing Reset BCD or something like that), and the next time I put the Vista recovery CD in, it detected a startup problem, fixed it and my system was working again! In the interim I had also attempted to move the BCD file, and a couple other random tricks. Who knows. I'll give it to you ;)

comment How can I repair Windows Vista after installing Windows XP on an external drive?
Oh, I definitely did select the right drive :) Windows XP is, in fact installed on the external drive. However, (as I now know) the process for installing Windows XP includes automatically installing it's own boot-loading system on your primary drive, regardless of what drive you're installing Windows on. It assumes you want to boot this computer from that drive. That's where my problem started. The entire filesystem of the Vista drive (C) is still intact... minus the part that makes it boot.
