How To use Linux Swap Partition as windows Swap file
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 28, 2006
I came across this neat little trick while researching another issue, installed it and have been running it for about two weeks. That being said, I only use win XP for morrowind, so I can't say I've fully verified this programs functionality.
How to use linux swap partition as windows swap file:
1. Go to the website below, and download the swapfs zip file to a windows accessible folder:
2. Write down the location of your linux swap partition (for example, mine is the 4th partition on the first drive; /dev/hda4 or (hd0,4). hda=hd0, hdb=hd2, etc... If your drive is sdaX, check your bios settings to determine which drive it is.
(Do not include extended partitions, only primary and logical).
3. Extract the contents of the zip file to its own folder, and open up the file "swapfs.reg" for editing, changing the two lines that read "\\Device\\Harddisk0\\Partition1" to the location of your linux swap partition (in

[How to] Multiboot USB from Linux ISOs/Windows Installer
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 25, 2013
Hello! I just suscribed to this forum to post this, since I couldn't find this information over the forum (I hope it is in the right section).
What will I be able to do?
Basically what we want to achieve is to be able to boot almost any Linux ISO (with the traditional loopback method) as well as being able to boot a Windows 7/8 installation from a USB.
Summarizing the process, we will make 2 FAT32 partitions in a USB, get the Windows Installation in the first partition (through syslinux with Universal USB installer). Then install grub2 to the second partition and modify the grub.cfg file to boot Linux ISOs and chainload to the Windows installation
Pendrive of at least 8GB (Not sure if you can make this with an external hard drive, the process should be similar though)Working windows installationWorking linux installationLinux ISOsWindows 7/8 ISOUniversal USB Installer

Deleted linux partition, how to boot Windows partition?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 14, 2005
I have an Intel box on which I previously was running both Linux and Windows. The boot loader that is installed is GRUB. I deleted the Linux partition (accidentally), and now when I reboot the machine Windows does not boot like it used to (Windows was the default OS). Instead, the system comes up with a "grub > " prompt.
How do I boot windows directly from grub? Please help!
[SOLVED] How to set printer options when printing from Linux to Windows printer
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 17, 2011
We want to print PDFs from a Linux server to a HP LaserJet 1320 PCL 6 which is attached to a Windows print server.
The command we use is
lp -d LaserJet sicl_rcpdebtnt_5.pdf
Problem is, the printout comes with the top 10% of the page not printed. i.e. the printing starts from about 10% of the PDF. The header and top information is not printed.
We tried the scaling option:
lp -o scaling=75 -d LaserJet sicl_rcpdebtnt_5.pdf
But that also has no effect. Only the characters become smaller but still the same problem is there.
What can we do to print the entire PDF in ONE page. When we open the PDF in Windows and print it we have to say Fit to printer margins for the printer's page scaling property.

How is Linux More secure than windows?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 29, 2010
I had windows server running a couple of web sites. I always worried about been hacked. When review the security logs I would see some crazy number indicating the type of logon attempt. So I switched to Linux (opensuse 11.2). Now that I look for info on how to secure my server is even more scary because everybody talks about security, ssh (or something like that), root kits, etc. How is Linux more secure than windows?
Another point is that windows installed all the gui needed for us to admin the server quick and easy while linux recommend the console line server because anything else is security risk. How linux is more secure?
Ok. There must be an answer to all this because I think it is my poor knowledge about how linux is secure at the end.
This is my question:
internet - router/firewall (forwarding port 80 only) - linux server (default firewall - default settings).
Based on this: would I worry about security on other ports? ex. ssh 22?
How can someone use port 22 if m
