if you scared, you can better buy a internal disk Sata or IDE depending on your motherboard.

so, then do not format your old harddrive, and use the new one. if you do not like the O.S 3.3 simple conecct again your old hardrive and you have your old O.S back.


for all security you can also save everything like i said on your PC.

better than this is not possible if you want to switch.

Fran tell me more about Winscape. I also use my router to transfer files from/to the MS and the PC and I can also play videos and Mp3 straight from the PC, but I can't access all the MS's folders only the Share Folder where I must copy those files I want to share. I'd like to be able to select the folders I want to share in the Ms just as I do in Windows. Is that posible? Otherwise I'll have to copy the MS Home Folder (many GB) into the Share folder first.

yes, correct
you can use easy the winscp.
Connect your MS on the network and then ping for find the IP addres get from your router under DHCP, like: 192.168.1.105 ( not sure that wil be the 105, depend on your router)
the run the winscp:
Host name: 192.168.1.105
port number: 22( is on default)
Username: root
Password: mx76
Press login and you will see the whole MS hard disk.
Now you can start to share/copy/delete files like a normally windows PC.

IF you have one open forward port on your router, you can give also your router IP addres: http://www.whatismyip.com/
open it and wil display your home IP ISP adress.
give this IP to another friend/Ms user and can also login direct on your MS too.
I use this system for fix the files from other MS custumers.

Is 7 years that I work in this way and by SSH direct from Konqueror
All my developer work at home ( germany, Portugal, Argentina, Lettonia, UK and Italy) they login on my own MS for develope the OS, compile and me here to make the test if all is working.
We are also connected in skype/Yahoo for the realtime messages.
Under this way I can choose the best linux developer without have this guy here in my office..
