    ipod tracking

    One of my teachers was saying when you connect your ipod to your computer and load up itunes, it sends out your serial number of the ipod connected to apple(assuming you have a internet connection).

    AppleCare Question

    I was wondering, if you buy a powerbook for example, if you don't buy AppleCare right away, can you purchase it later and just have it apply from the time you originally bought the laptop? I think someone told me you could do this but I wasn't too sure. Thanks.

    DNS question

    First off I am not very smart when it comes to DNS so bear with me. I was wondering if there was a way to import an excel spreadsheet (saved as space delimited raw text) with ip to host names into win2k dns.

    Powerbook Battery

    Someone told me they make longer lasting powerbook batteries than the standard ones. Is this true, how long do they last, and does anyone know where I can get them? I searched and saw a bunch for older ones like wallstreet or something but couldn't really find any larger capacity ones. Thanks.

    Question about OSX and Linux apps

    Will linux programs compile and work under the PPC and OSX? Do some work and some don't? Will they work if I install gentoo or yellowdog? I ask this because I was seriously considering switching over to a 12" powerbook. This would be for when I go to college. Another question I had, if you...

I saw that on some sun boxes you can use a serial cable and get a text display of the system if you have no monitor or keyboard. I was wondering if this is true for most systems or was possible to set up at all. This way I...
