just a quick message anybody who has or intends to do the sp3 update for their xp setup.

when you do the upgrade M$oft in their infinate wisdom switch the windows firewall back on, not a problem if you know they are going to do it :)

i have been looking at a problem app on one of my machine and couldn't understand why it wouldn't work, i was contemplating uninstalling sp3 to see if it would work and just flicked on network connections before i did and saw window firewall was on .....grrrrrr....turned off and app is now working again through my own firewall.

Hi Charlie

it runs linux but you dont need to use it as install is all gui options and once installed everything is accessed via ie or firefox.
