    Do you think it'll catch? Who'll run it? I don't have the time for that. Do you?

      don't think it will run...
      you can give it a shot without a moderator..
      if it will run, you call always ask for a moderator??? right?

          yeah well I don't know what's best - a dead forum with a few posts or no forum at all? I'll set up a poll and we'll see. Let the poll run for a week or two. How about that?

            I don't think it is worth it. I am a moderator on a hardware board and there are many of them around (boards, not moderators). I don't know what Daniel's intentions are for this board but I joined because it offered a resource for possible problems I might/will encounter with Win2K3, XP and AD. I consider this a site for IT Professionals and not for Joe Blow who has problems putting Windows 95 on his 486 or can't find an XP driver for his Trident 512K video adapter. If you are installing Win2K3 then you will hopefully be installing it on some high end hardware and not the minimum that Microsoft recommends which may cause problems.

            However if Daniel eventually hope to get enough members to attract some advertising to offset the cost of running this board/site then Hardware and other Forums wil be needed.

            That's my 5 cents worth. (We don't have 1 or 2 cents coins in OZ)
            1 1 was a racehorse.
            2 2 was 1 2.

              why do you think that on high end hardware there are no problams ?
              my computers teacher always said " if it doesnt crash its not a pc"
              the more stronger computers will get the more resources applications will need which will finally always has an affect on hardware.

                Ronker, your post is a bit off topic. If you wish to continue this, we could start another thread and keep this one clean for the Hardware Forum yes/no discussion. What do you think?

                2 2 was 1 2.

                    i think, its a great idea to start a poll.
                    i actually don't care if there is one.... i wouldn't use it anyway..

                      I think it's a great Idea for a Hardware form. As not everybody looks at ways to Tweak it, but to make it Operate like it should. True There are plenty of Hardware forms that take about the Hardware. But I have yet to see one that will explain to the Lamer, how it should work. And NOT how to just Tweak it. I'd even run the form If need be. Or we could all trade off on it. I'm In Gents.

                        Hi pclinc,
                        If you havent already, please vote in the hardware forum poll and your opinion will be added to the others.

                        Personally, I think the new Misc forum is the place for the limited number of hardware issues likely to be of relevance here -- remember the whole group of forums (fora?) is aimed at servers and networking, with client operating systems and issues only really of relevance if they affect an entire network.

                        This is not intended as a "put down" or to trivialise client operating systems, but personally I like the very sharp focus of this forum and would hate to see it become a "dumping ground" for any windows hardware and software issues. There are too many forums where you get swamped with discussion on every computing related issue.

                        Daniel -- if you have not yet done so, can I suggest you have a definite mission statement for the board (apologies if I am out of line suggesting it) similar to the mission on the main home page www.petri.com

                          Tom,

                          I will do just that, I just need to sit down and write something. Can you pick up the hat for me? I honestly think that you can do a better job...

                            Well What Can I say. I voted. Looks like it won't fly. But It was just a Idea. But then again I've only been doing this Computer stuff since 1968.
