yeah, you know what i totally didn't think about setting the environmental
values (yeah Media Center is the same as XP Pro). i guess i should of known
that. geeze now i feel like a moron. however, i didn't know about that quick
little DOS trick.
thanks a lot guys for such a quick response and pointing out the obvious.
this has got to be the best and most friendly list ever.
happy new year to you all,
