    Seems a while ago we had someone called A._Leon. He was a Foxrider friend. Well he has been PM'ing me to be unbanned. I figured since he was so rude that coming back should not be as easy as just a flick of the switch so I proposed to him a test. Below is the PM I responded to him...

    This is going to be fun... :D

    BTW the #2 question was a one I had asked someone during the interview process since my boss asked me to comeup with one. The interviewee was looking for a System Administrator job. I asked the question and no one in the room (5 people) could get the answer. It took a free lunch and lots of begging to get it out of me.

    How do I know this question, personal experience. I install NT4 on serveral machines, and this one machine gave me such a problem I almost called M$ for help. Luckily I found the solution in time and the humiliation of asking M$ for help was averted.

    Its a head slapper when you hear the answer... IMO

    Anything to do with needing a Service pack to support AGP cards?

    Heh, well all I know is that you need Service Pack 3 or later to use an AGP card correctly, although PK's probably talking about some uber-compatible PCI card and some rare as hell NT problem that i'll never guess :p :D

    DING DING DING Speedy B got it. But it actually has nothing to do with AGP. Any video card will have an issue or all most any card but most can be fixed with SP3 or later.

    Bonus points will be awarded to anyone who can tell me the order in which you should install the SP's and OP's for NT4 also to be sure and say which SP and OP should not be installed ??

    hehe :D
