    Have you considered runing the "defrag" in the middle of the night?

    I use the schedule utility to do it at 3am when I know I shall not be using it (usually).

    Most people don't understand what you can do "Out of the box" and load their machines up with all sorts of third party software.

    Tell me about it, Like Novel, my last company used it because no one knew how to route IP address, and apparently you dont need to in Novel so they just used that instead

    What version of Novell did they use? V5 comes with TCP/IP as standard.

    IPX is just as difficult/easy (IMHO)
