Here is how I setup my K12LTSP server to authenticate against a postgres database.

Finding windows folder sizes and more

Ever wonder folder sizes in windows XP or on your server. Try ExplorerXP. One of my employee's showed this program to me so that I can determine how much space each user is using on my Novell server by folder.

WinXP Pro Permissions

I've always been frustrated with the permissions given to me by Windows XP. I finally found the solution the other day. MS set the "Simple Sharing" box checked by default in the Folder-> View box. Uncheck it and you get the permissions that were used to seeing in 2k if you are using an NTFS formated disk.

MS Word column selection

Just a tip I learned from Shane Hinshaw. If you press the alt (Windows) or option (Mac) key while selecting text in MS Word you can select a column of text rather than lines of text.

Lost IP settings

I recently lost the ability to change the IP settings on my computer and found the following post that was helpful at Scott's Newsletter Forum.
Basically the solution was get a copy of a good version of tcpip.sys, copy it to the c:\, and run the following commands form the command line recovery console. chkdsk /p del c:\windows\system32\drivers\tcpip.sys chkdsk /p copy c:\tcpip.sys to c:\windows\system32\drivers\tcpip.sys chkdsk /p

Thanks guys.
