Can someone help a beleagured (windows ignorant) unix nerd who is forced
to support a couple of odd windows machines out? Where do I find this on a
windows 2000 professional machine? Alternatively, if this just twiddles
some reg key, can someone tell me what to do via regedit to acheive the
same thing?
