Well, I keep hearing good things about this, and I'm curious so here I go.
Only, even in the initial steps it refuses to allow me to download from
Avast, each time I try and add it to the trusted zone (that is what I think
I'm doing?) I'm back at the download link which connects to a different
server from which I am then barred because it is not listed as a trusted
zone - and so on 'ad infinitum'.

Tony,
While you try to solve your problem, you may want alternate sites for
downloading Avast like:

http://www.download.com/Avast-Home-E...dlPid=10852750

or

http://www.filehippo.com/download_avast_antivirus/

While you're playing with Windows Server 2008, make sure you give Terminal
Services RemoteApps a trial run. I think this, along with the built in
Hyper-V, of course, is THE killer must have feature in Windows Server 2008.

The Avast site provides a few external links and the result was much the
same - I was thinking, since most Vista people here seem to treat (what I
tend to see as a straight-jacket) the security measures just gently
grumbling, that my own personal browser management procedures would need
some adjustment?

I do NOT like IE any more - will FF help at all with this matter, or will I
end up hating that too? I know some of the (mis)functionality can simply be
turned off, and that it is not recommended to do so. If this isn't having
any kind of bonus, or niceties at all ( something you will actually come to
like) then having an Internet connection, surely, will be completely
useless, and an utter waste?

There's a high threshold for me to climb, I know, but I will need to downlod
a few things like my AV and Video drivers and stuff before I can start
making the neccessary adjustments, in effect ripping out well seated spinal
reactions, I expect!

Ah - this is the good old machine that I used to test XP x64 (socket 939!)
so Hyper-V is out of the question, as I understand. If I end up loving the
system like I have XP x64, I intend to buy a license and move it on to the
AM2 system and that should certainly make it one of the major items of
interest.

The 'TSRA' stuff, honestly, I can't even imagine what I would use it for -
I'll look it over if I can find any descriptive 'writty' about it.
Everything I do happens right here at my desktop(s) and I cannot begin to
imagine what it would give me that I cannot do right now by sliding over to
the next machine, or that a dual core CPU couldn't do multi-tasking.

And I half-way know you will surprise me now, Charlie!

O.K. - I must excuse myself - I was very tired and I shut myself down and
went to bed. Now the AV and the nVidia drivers are both up and I'm rummaging
the drawers for my HP Monitor install disk to try and squeeze a bit more
resolution out of this thing.

It's not half bad, really! But I can see, I need a new machine for this.
Socket 939 paired with 1GB RAM and AGP will soon be ruining the party,
although booting reveals a great deal of power!

Ahem!

It turns out, Avast home Edition is not supported on Server OS's. I
should've expected this - oh well, I was contemplating buying the Pro anyhow
so I'll take this as a good excuse to foot a small bill.

TS RemoteApps is a great solution, even in a small office. For example, here
we run Office 2003 locally, and both of us are hard core Word 2003 users.
Neither of us wants to move to Word 2007 any time soon, if ever. But the
other Office apps we'd prefer to run Office 2k7 most of the time. So, I set
up TS RemoteApps and I run Word locally, and Outlook, Excel and PowerPoint
2k7 remotely. But they all look and feel like they're running locally. All
documents are stored on the main SBS server anyway, so that's not an issue,
and the drive mappings are all the same so there's transparency. If I want
to switch to my laptop and work out on the back deck on a nice sunny day
here in paradise, I have exactly the same experience as if I were at my
desk. And with SBS 2008, when I'm on the road I will have direct access to
my TS RemoteApps from Remote Web Workplace exactly as if I were in the
office. With a link to them on the RWW landing page. (I could set this up in
RWW for SBS 2003, but haven't bothered since we'll be migrating to SBS 2008
with the next RC drop.)

The only thing I haven't been able to do yet (and I'm working on it), is to
run both Office 2k3 and Office 2k7 from the TS. If I can manage that, I'll
remove office from my local machines entirely. Leave it on the laptop for
when I'm on the road and have connectivity issues, but otherwise work
entirely from the TS RemoteApps.

You can even set up TS RemoteApps to "capture" the extensions on a machine.
So, for example, you could double click on a .DOC file and it would
automatically launch the TS RemoteApp version of Word.

(on hyper-v, and your 939's - sadly, you are correct. No hyper-v there. I'm
in the same position with a couple of boxes. )

AGP shouldn't be an issue, but the 1 GB is going to be a bit tight. I'm
running it on my Opteron 185 with an ATI 1650 (AGP) card and 3 GB of RAM and
it's quite happy. No hyper-v on this box, of course, but otherwise quite
nice.

I have to say: that sounds pretty neat. Particularly, if you could have
resource heavy app's execute on a powerfull machine and have it appear with
little effort of a much wimpier thing, like a laptop? But, of course, they
would all have to run the same OS, I suppose?

The way I live at the moment, however, it wouldn't be all-together practical
for me. But I will need to get something resonably serious to do before I
retire, and needs change all of the time - I appreciate this, Charlie - I
have most of the machinery all ready, I just got to come up with ways to get
it all activated all at once!
