  1. Removing it from the domain would prevent NEW users from logging in, not users that have logged in already, like I said it keeps a cache. To remove it from the domain log on to the the machine locally > right click my computer > properties > click the "Computer Name" tab > click the Change... button > select Workgroup and give it your own workgroup name then hit ok twice and restart. It should not be connected to the domain and receiving GPO updates anymore. Now to change the local group policy settings log on as a local admin and select Run from the start menu and type "gpedit.msc" and from here you have access to the local group policy settings. Also, while you're logged on locally as the admin you can add your normal username to the administrators group by right clicking My Computer > Manage > Local Users and Groups > click on Groups > then double click the Administrators group and add your username. Now you can log onto the machine with your normal username and have administrative access.
  2. Windows already has a foothold on large corporations and big business, they aren't going to toss out their Windows network. Windows Vista isn't THAT bad. Sure it has issues but with a few tweaks it can run just the way you want especially if you're not interacting directly with the OS. Does anybody remember when Windows XP first came out and how much of a crapper it was? -FreeBSD 4 Life!
  3. If it's true what you say (you have access to the local admin account) then you can remove the machine from the domain all together. After that it will not receive GPO updates as it will not be in the domain. You can basically do anything at this point. Also, if a Windows machine is separated from the Domain server and you're logged in as a normal user the last group policy is still enforced, it doesn't become rendered useless......... It also keeps a cache of the users that were logged onto last so those users are still able to log on to the machine. After a certain amount of time though it starts to have errors with multiple users and temporary profiles. If you bring a live CD they will notice you and they will shut you down, most of the time if they don't know what's going on they will freak out, keep everything nice and windowsy.
  4. A lot of the hacks are based on autorun being enabled which by default it is enabled. A good idea though would be to have a backup plan such as having something that needs to be opened somehow to release an exploit on the machine you are trying to pwn. A good way is to have something that needs to be printed, some people are inclined to help the public such as receptionists so they won't give it a second thought.
  5. There are a lot of ways to do this. Using a router would be very easy. Since you don't have wireless why are you concerned with somebody physically connecting to your network? Do you have ports all willy-nilly around where you are? Windows XP is not meant for being used as a server, I would recommend going with Windows Server 2003 or even 2008 if you had to go with Windows. Within these OS's you can assign Static IP's to machines based on their mac addresses although considering you're using Windows XP for a server I doubt this is necessary for you. In any case what do you have against a router?
  6. You could look at puppy linux or xubuntu.
  7. I'm pretty sure there's a few articles on Google that may be informative.
  8. Also I'm not too sure why they told you to use a Windows XP disc because as far as I know they change the way Vista boots so it's completely different from XP. You can always go into the recovery console on the Vista disc and start up the command line. To fix the Vista bootloader from the command line type "bootrec.exe /fixmbr" (without quotes obviously) and that should fix it so you are at least able to boot into Vista. I suppose you could try the automatic repair but I haven't tried that yet so use at your own risk. Here's some info for you.
  9. Wow.
  10. Those HP dv's are a bitch when it comes to this sort of thing. I set up Ubuntu on mine and it has an nVidia 8600M GS. I still have an image of Ubuntu so I'll see if I can get it going again and see what I did to get it to work.
  11. I don't know, Strom says it's going to be kept up to date so we better just wait for it to update.
  12. Do an iwconfig and tell us what it says.
  13. The problem is you're using a 'burnt' disc.
  14. Just reinstall it, I had this issue at work and we just reinstalled it after finding that word can get corrupted and have all kinds of issues after long enough.
  15. try doing this ifconfig [device] down iwconfig [device] mode monitor ifconfig [device] up [device] being the wifi device you are trying to use. after that just type iwconfig and the device should show itself in monitor mode, if not then it might not be able to go into monitor mode.
