RE: Re: [K12OSN] Logging onto the server from a windows machine



I have a nifty little laptop I use to solve problems like that =)
it's called a Libretto from Toshiba =)
it's about 1/2 the size of your average textbook mine runs win '95
and unless they are draconian about their DHCP as well, just plug into
network boot and voila =)
just "slightly" larger than a usb jump drive =)
or you might get one of those new snazzy Zaurus handheld jobbies from
Sharp!

Our district is so tight that the left hand keeps secrets from the right
hand.  Floppy and USB key drives are out because the security won't
accept anything that is an executable program type file.  These turkeys
have even got boot security so you can't start from a floppy or other
removable media.
