    Don't Buy The Full Vista

    "While I'd thank the guy that informed me I left my keys in my unlocked car, I'd shoot the one who noticed and decided to drive off with it to 'demonstrate the problem.'" Having said that, I happily use FreeBSD at home (with Mac OS X on my (Apple) laptop). I use OpenOffice.org for office related stuff (which works good enough for me... if I ever need full office for something I can use a work PC). Just my $0.02.

    What Operating System Do You Run?

    Windows on 2 laptops. FreeBSD on every other machine in the house. BSD all the way

    Fat > Ntfs

    Last time I had to do this, after running the command I was informed that the conversion would not take place until the system was rebooted. So perhaps this "disk check" you're seeing on boot-up is actually the conversion trying to run... because it'll run at boot before the rest of the OS has a chance to load up.

    What Is Your Career?

    I used to be a hardware tech. Pretty stressful. I'm sure there are others out there who understand when I say you would get that sick feeling in the pit of your stomache when you heard the pager go off... especially during the super bowl!!! Now I'm in Open Systems Services, where we basically manage Windows and UNIX servers, as well as networking equipment. I have a set schedule, no on-call rotations, and very little stress. Hopefully soon I'll be taking a UNIX admin position. Bring on the stress!!!

    Iexplore.exe Has Suddenly Appeared!

    Not to worry, IEXPLORE.exe is the executable (program) name for Microsoft Internet Explorer. I'm assuming that when you clicked "Tech Help" it attempted to open a web page in IE.

    Problem With This Forum's Header

    Try resizing the window, make sure you're not zoomed, and just for good measure, try a different browser.

    Steve - I'll try that one. I've found the same pinout elsewhere, however what confused me is yet another site gave me a tad bit different pinout. Tim - I did buy the adapter for a couple bucks (at Fry's however). But you have to do the pinout yourself (some assembly required ). Meh, we've got a ton here at work. I'll throw lunch at one of the network guys and have them do it for me. Thanks for your help!

    I guess I should give a bit of background (in case you are curious). I've got a Sun Ultra2 that I would love to start using, however I need to run a console line from it to another system of mine to console in. I'm going from DB9 (Serial) on the PC to the RJ45 console port on the Sun. I'll be making the required rollover cable while I'm at work tomorrow. Just need to put this adapter together and I'm golden!

    Anyone happen to know the proper pinout for RS232 (DB9 to RJ45) adapter? I've been doing some searching online, and find a couple postings that contradict each other. Both ends are female on the adapter. Thanks
