I studied information science and did computers from the old Commodore VC-20 onwards.

I started during study as pc-admin for DOS, Windows, WfW and all related software and hardware stuff.

Later I switched over to servers, starting with linux-samba and NT 3.5/4.0.

My first job made me a Solaris admin in a huge company with over 500 solaris servers. There I got every day a new interesting problem that I have never encountered before.

My next job brought me into project management and later back to system administration - mainly Linux. It was frustrating to manage a project when you knew that doing the admin`s job yourselv would have the current step finished in less than 30 minutes...

@Don I did install grub4dos on a fat partition. That can be read and written by all systems.

comment Multiple IPs on Multiple NICs same subnet
Please explain why you have those IPs assigned. BTW: ip route get $IP will show you which interface will be used for that target IP.

revised Replacing a non-failing drive in a RAID-0 array
This is a RAID 0 - as noted by the author of the question and the answer. So there is only one option here.

comment Move “Documents and Settings” to its own volume
I do not want to change the logical location nor the name of that folder. I just want to physically place it onto a different volume. On DOS this would be equvalent to Join. I already have this construction at I:\Tmp - that is a volume-link to S:\

comment Move “Documents and Settings” to its own volume
@barlop sadly this is where %USERPROFILE% points to - and many programs use that variable. Sadly even my Antivirus uses the userprofile-location for "All Users" there - and places tmp-files and virus definition files there. Annoying - but many applications are written that way (and provide no way to change the destination path).
