Who has my CD? [Aug. 20th, 2000|08:39 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
Who borrowed my Redhat 6.2 CD? My dad wants to install it on one of his computers. I'm downloading the ISO now and it'll be done shortly, but it's bugging me not knowing where it went. (heh ... I remember why I installed 6.2 in the firstplace: to recover my files on my Windows machine after my Win98 to Win2k upgrade left my machine in an unusable state ... had to install linux to get things working again, restore my files, then do a fresh Win2k install. :-P)

win2k shell

we use this at work sometimes. if you go (dos shell) on the win2k cd in the i386 dir and type 'winnt32 /cmdcons' it will install a Recovery Console option to your bootup. if you choose this option on bootup it will dump you into a dos like shell instead of going into windows mode. its pretty sweet, well sweet for windows.
