I would ALWAYS go with installing Windows first.... back in the day, Windows always overwrote the MBR and therefore you couldn't boot to other OS's present in the system until you fixed what Windows broke. I believe they have since fixed that little annoyance, but I'd still trust Linux to know how to handle other coexistant operating systems better than Windows would.
Hi I have a problem in subnetting, if anyone has an idea could help, the problem is: If I have 6 hosts and in a class A address, how do I get the number of subnets and the custom subnet mask if am given a network number 184.108.40.206, thank you.
Are you asking how to set your network settings on your RHL box so you can see other computers on your network and also get to the internet?
Can you see the other computers but not get to the internet?
Are you trying to do this in the GUI or at the CLI?

I'm not a network/hardwre person, so bear with me.
I have a laptop connected wirelessly that I can't see in Network Neighborhood. If I connect it with cable, I can then see it. The firewall on the laptop is off. All the other pc's in the office can see each other in Network Neighborhood.
That can happen for a number of reasons...
0. In newer versions of Windows, you have to tell Windows that you're in a trusted zone or else it blocks certain services. Make sure you've specified that you're in a home or work network as opposed to a public network.
1. Are you sure your wifi network can even access the rest of the network? In some places, the wifi is isolated so that you can't even access the rest of the network or placed in a different subnet so that there's virtual separation.
2. Make sure your adapter doesn't have NetBIOS turned off, not sure if this would cause that problem exactly but it should be on in a work network anyway.
3. Make sure your computer is on the same domain (should be if it works over the wire).
In some Dell models there is also the "F10" (If I'm not mistaken) key to access the recovery partition.
But most times this is a question of timming with the Crt+F11 shortcut.
here is a good guide for the multiple options of recover you might won't to try, and also pros and cons of each :
Turn on the computer, at the "Dell" splash screen hold down CTRL and press F11. Let go of both keys.
I think the trick is to hold CTRL just after you turn it on and then press F11 a few times... eventually you'll get it
Is there a way of working out, why radia wants to reboot your pc for the fourth time?
Contact their helpdesk, ask if there's a technical person who can list the updates. If one of those processes is "in use" on the client's PC, then it cannot be replaced (you can't replace a running executable) and will be replaced on the next boot, just before the login-screen appears. Hence the need for a (4th) reboot.
Ask them if they could set up the patches so that the clients all update at the same time, preferably before office-hours. That would mean that all computers should be booted at that time, but that's when the most clients will not be using their apps, and it should limit the amount of reboots required during the day.

Hello! I read many forums and did not get a competent and accurate answer so I decided to post here.
I have bought a laptop and it has installed Russian language on windows 7 home premium. I know the only way to change the language via the language pack is to upgrade to higher versions but I have the following question: Can I download and install the same version (windows 7 home premium 64bit) with US English now with the same product key with keeping license?
I am slowly getting my Win 7 where I want it.
I like to continue using Briefcase but finding out that it is not an option when New folder is used ( as advertized in Win7 Help ). The only way to get it is via desktop. I would not call it user friendly operation. Is that normal on Win 7 or did I find another problem with my Inspiron?
I also cannot get the “old” XP equivalent of start up programs on start. I need some advice here.
Thanks for the Start-up info, that would’ve been the last place I would look. Appreciate that.
However, I would also appreciate if in the future you do not insult my intelligence making references to "Google it". Been there , done that! FYI - my four year grandson knows how to Google. I guess I need to start posting again that Google references are not necessary.
I think you also misread my comment about Briefcase. Win 7 Help specifically describe how to activate Briefcase after creating New Folder.
There is no such option to do that on my copy of Win 7.
I would also appreciate if in the future you do not insult my intelligence making references to "Google it".
I did not insult your intelligence, nor did I say "Google it". You ask a vague question but give no indication that you have used Google to find any references, so I did it for you. Did you actually follow the link and read any of the entries?
One of these days I'm going to think of a really clever signature.
I have a PC with Windows 7 OS which is having problem booting up.
It runs “DOS” check disk and does not complete it and does not boot.
By accident I changed the vendor's boot to USB and it booted the OS.
I have been unsuccessful changing the setup to boot to USB. The boot precess runs differently each time I try that and never completes.
So it looks like MBR on the HD is kaput. Since I am new to Windows 7 I hope I can get to DOS fdisk and restore the MBR.
Or is there any other newfangled way to to this in Windows 7?
At one point the OS start running “automatic updates” , but started with #40 out of 72.
My guess is that the original update got interrupted and the result is no boot record on HD.
BTW , for 64 bit OS it is painfully slow, but I do not look given horse into mouth.
Thanks for your help.
