  1. the best free game site of all time is home of the underdogs. their page is normally: http://www.the-underdogs.org but since they are having DNS issues you must connect directly to their ip for now: http://209.120.136.195/
  2. i'll also help host the files, where can they be found?
  3. sir, i think you are confused about the role of the boot sector. it's only purpose is to create a stack, do a tiny bios thing, and load a kernel.... surely you don't need 12mb of code to do that
  4. all you need to do is check a certain registry key to see if you have a connection. i just don't remember what that key is right now....
  5. heh, sorry for being a dick, but it seemed like you were ignoring good advice. the code you posted should work flawlessly, it's very similar to what i do. did you try logging the output of your scripts to find any errors? (i.e. winsetup.cmd >>log.txt)
  6. he gave you a perfectly good way to accomplish what you want. this is my cmdlines.txt: [COMMANDS] "RunOnceEx.cmd" this is first line in my RunOnceEx.cmd: FOR %%i IN (D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z) DO IF EXIST %%i:\2Fast_XP.nfo SET CDROM=%%i: in my RunOnceEx.cmd i then run them like so: SET KEY=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx REG ADD %KEY% /V TITLE /D "Installing Applications..." /f REG ADD %KEY%\005 /VE /D ".Net Framework 2.0" /f REG ADD %KEY%\005 /V 1 /D "%cdrom%\Install\Net20\install.exe /q" /f it works like a charm. when using a forum you should perhaps ignore what you think you know and be more open to suggestion.
  7. i was really hoping there was a microsoft utility
  8. easily spoofed? if your isp has mac filtering you're REQUIRED to spoof your ethernet card's MAC with your router
  9. instead of making a self-extracting archive, i would recommend using makecab to create a .cab archive of your files. then afterwards you would use a batch script like this to decompress: @echo off expand myfiles.cab %1 if the script was named filecopy.bat, you would call it like this: filecopy.bat d:\i386 note: expand and makecab are microsoft utilities that come with xp
  10. yes, but my harddrives don't fit into a dvd case you expect a brand new media type to be affordable the moment it starts being manufactured? guess you've never used cdrs or dvdrs or bought them in the past
  11. i don't understand why you would want to replace a line in a batch script. it would require patching the file and kind of negates the simplicity of a batch file. i sometimes have a batch file create another batch file via echo > file.txt, perhaps that would be a better solution than trying to patch an existing script?
  12. xp has improved windows in all regards: compatibility, speed, and stability. comparing a server with a crappy home xp isn't a fair comparison. just as you have learned over the years how to properly tailor 2000 to your server needs, xp needs some trimming and tweaking to bring out it's workstation best. xp pro sp2, with about half the features turned off, makes for the most stable and productive workstation i've had in years. the fact you have a 2gb system partition speaks volumes about your own technical "genius". the real geek knows that having a system partition was -always- a flawed theory and in reality it can do nothing but slow down your overall harddrive access.
