Spenting three weeks of `and click to change that'; and *Reboot* kinda
defeats the point.

*Yes you can*. Trying to blame NT crashes on `nobody spenting enough on
the hardware' is similar to the `I'll only frob NT if it has 110% branded
cards in it';
Lets face it, it's a getout clause: a) Only a few people know how to patch
NT to get it to a `decent' stability level. b) Secondly that ``stability''
level really sucks when you sit it next to a unix box.

Might I respectfully suggest that sunrescue is not the best place to make
"ridiculous claims" like these.

Yes, they are called MCSEs.
