harris ur rahman wanted us to know:
Prof sriram was sayin somthin bout Shadow. Faintly understand it
hath to do with passwords. Enlightenment please.
The idea is not to keep your passwords in /etc/passwd which is world
readable. Have another file /etc/shadow to keep your passwords which is
only readable by root.
Any basic book on UNIX will explain this. You could also type "shadow
passwords" in google for further funda.
I opened the file from fstab it contained an entry for the
usernames in my comp for linux fillowed by some numbers . How
important is it
Pardon me. fstab ?
" [OFF - Topic] :there was a disscussion about images being
rectangular shaped. is it possible to have an irregular shaped
form in VB."
Yes, again google is your friend. I can't recall those obscure APIs off
my head. If you want me to search, email me offlist, but I'll take my
own sweet time.
Thanx in advance.
