    Hi snowman! What a gem! If it works with Pentium, will it work with Celeron? I bookmarked those sites. Can it work in tandem with my other firewall? I have a lot of questions but I'll check those sites out more thoroughly when I have more time. Thank you, snowman! :)

    NetBoz is live-CD. The OS doesn't matters. Just burn and play it.

    Whew! Took 2 and 1/2 hours to download! I've got it. Now, just have to "decipher" the Manual Instructions and I can get it started. WebAttack did say that this firewall was not for your average at-home user! They weren't kidding.

    To snowman: Remember the "doberman" I spoke to you about? It looks like NetBoz can do that! It would work on that old system you have, turning it into a firewall. Once I get this thing set up, I'll be able to tell you more.

    much looking forward to your opinion of this program.....tryed to DL it three times..(on cable)...it started out at 94 bks.....an in less than 2 minutes dropped to 9 bks.......would have taken near five hours to dl......something must be wrong with their server.....on another dl I did today...near the same time frame...got 50 kbs.......

    yes I recall our discussion....in fact that influenced the post.......are you going to install this on your main computer or another...then network ?

    Hi snowman! You mean for once DSL is faster than cable on a download? That's interesting! To answer your question, I'll be putting it on the main computer if and only if I can get everything setup properly. Some fussy bits to take care of, like BIOS. The instructions assume that I have half a clue, which I don't usually. Wish me luck! I'll need it! ;)

    Sliderules? Haven't used one since highschool. Actually, if snowman will forgive me, your link doth work fine. I was exaggerating when I said I was clueless. It just seems that whenever I think I have my "magic box" figured out, I find something even more mysterious. I am always learning! (A lot of it is in solo flights.) So, if you have any hints, tips or advice, it will be much appreciated and honored. ;)
