    FreeBSD and Apache 2.x

    I've been looking into setting up Apache on FreeBSD, and so I've been looking around some books and online docs, and the same question keeps coming to mind. From the FreeBSD Handbook: Is there any particular reason for the FreeBSD Project's preference for Apache 1.3.X? Is it licensing...

    m0n0wall question

    So I've been using m0n0wall as my firewall going on about 4 weeks now, and I am very impressed with it. I was just thinking that I would also try to add in a wireless card to make it into a WAP as well. Does anybody know what specific version of FreeBSD it's based off of, so I can check wireless...

    Is using KDE asking too much of my laptop?

    So I wiped Windows off of my laptop around Christmas because I'd been itching to put *NIX on there for a while. I started out with Kubuntu, but when I saw this thread on the forums the other day, I was intrigued by PC-BSD. I don't know why, but *BSD has always had a greater pull for me than...

    ASUS awdflash utility??

    So I'm looking all around ASUS' website trying to find their damn BIOS flashing utility so that I have the latest version, but I keep running into dead ends. How can they tell you to update your awdflash.exe to the latest version without giving you a link to it? :confused: This brings me to a...

    Interested in Seasonic 600W, but have a question

    So as the thread title says, I'm interested in the Seasonic 600W PSU. I like the promise of quiet and such, but the one thing about it that concerns me is all of the people in the NewEgg reviews (about half a dozen, I think, wasn't really counting) who said they got DOA units or units that died...

    Want to try overclocking; Will my board give me anything?

    So I feel like I'm finally ready to delve into the world of overclocking, but I had a question about my motherboard (A8N-SLI Deluxe -- in sig). I remember back when I bought it last January that people were complaining about overclocking performance. Is it possible to get a halfway decent OC out...

    "Best" way to flash BIOS?

    So I'm planning on doing a full driver upgrade this weekend (vid card and chipset drivers). I've been lagging, don't think I've updated any drivers in months :p. Anyway, I decided "why not the BIOS, too?" I've never updated the BIOS since I've had the board (on version 1002). I could use the...

    BSD Philosophy Question: Ports vs pkg_add

    So I'm sitting here at school, bored off my ass and browsing through the FreeBSD handbook (amazing how productive time-wasting can be... ;) ) and suddenly it strikes me: why have both ports and pkg_add? Actually, I like having the choice, being rather impatient with older hardware at times...

    Exchange Server question

    Hi all, I'm hoping to draw on some Windows Server 2003 expertise out there to solve a problem I'm having getting Exchange Server 2003 running for a class project. Ran dcdiag, passed all the tests. Ran netdiag, passed all the tests but one. I got this error ouput: Can I still proceed with...

    NF4 SATA Question

    My roommate is assembling a new computer with an ECS KN1E mobo, and we can't for the life of us seem to find a util on the driver disk that would allow us to make a driver floppy for SATA, or NV SATA drivers for that matter. The manual and website are no help either. Would NV sata drivers from...

    Random lockups and reboots while gaming

    This problem has cropped up in just the last couple of days or so. When I'm playing a game, I can play for a certain amount of time, and then the computer locks up or reboots. I'm kind of thinking heat my be the culprit here. The ASUS Probe utility tells me that my board temperature is 40C...

    DDR 400 running at DDR333??

    Hi all. I was just fooling with my new system and noticed something odd. I'm supposed to have 1GB of PC3200 RAM, but all of my diagnostic tools (Asus PC Probe, CPU-Z, etc) all tell me that my memory is running at DDR 333 speeds. I poked around BIOS but I couldn't find any way to modify these...

    Odd 6600GT problem

    I have an odd problem with my new setup (specs in sig). Every time I exit certain games - Raven Shield and Pandora Tomorrow that I know of for sure - windows crashes and the computer reboots. Upon booting up again, windows tells me that there was a problem with the video card drivers that caused...

    n00b SATA Question...

    I know this is probably a n00b question, but here's my problem: I just finished putting my new system together (with an ASUS A8N SLI Deluxe :D ) and I know I need to load SATA drivers at windows setup so I can use my SATA drive. But I am unsure how to make a disk for the NVidia SATA drivers. I...

    A8N-SLI Question

    I've been browsing through a few threads on the Asus SLI motherboard and seen the 24-pin ATX power connecter mentioned. I ordered the Antec Performance Plus case (w/ 430 watt PSU) from the Egg for my new system. While I'm confident that it has the juice to power my new setup, I'm worried about...

    What should I do?

    Hey all, I'm in a quandary right now over what I should order for my next system. I know I want Athlon 64, and I'd like to have socket 939. But I'd also like to do PCI-E. Should I just say the heck with it and go for AGP instead? I figure I'll end up getting a 6600GT for a video card. Right...

    Integrated Video Problem?

    Hi everyone. I've just spent the afternoon putting together a computer for my stepmom. She doesn't do much of anything besides surf the web, email, and office work, so I figured I'd try to save her some money and order a motherboard with integrated graphics. The system specs are as follows...

    Need an optical drive

    I posted a thread the other day about a new system I'm going to build. I just realized something, though. I forgot an optical drive (doh!). I'd like to get a DVD burner, but I guess the question is, which one? Don't want to spend too much money, though. I was thinking that this 8x dual layer...

    Decisions, Decisions....

    Hey all, long-time lurker, first-time poster. Was hoping you guys could help me decide on a couple of things for a new system I'll be building. It'll be my 2nd self-built rig. So I really want to wait until around Christmas to see what happens with Socket 939 and NForce4 (like, if it will...
