However, until Windows 2000 my only experience w/NT had been the Exchange Server - creating user profiles & synchronizing w/Novell accounts. That's when I stopped working, so I don't have a good understanding of some NT concepts. Now I have a new PC running Vista, which conveniently let someone set up a network the first time I plugged it in. (DSL modem hadn't yet authenticated to the ISP server.) So in a Catch-22, before the computer could download its Windows security patches and Norton updates, something snuck in & did a bunch of registry changes, etc. -- & even delayed the start of said Windows updates. But that will be the topic of my first post!!!!
