What programming language can i use in linux

you can use c,c++ by default no need to install the extra software like in windows ..

LINUX comes with the softwares just like office suite,programming tools,web designing tools,etc and drivers inbuilt in it ...
so once you install the LINUX you will be having almost all the required softwares inbuilt in it including music player,video player,etc

if you want you can install the extra softwares too but the softwares use in windows doesnt work with linux you must download the separate software for linux ....

linux is best in security wise because no virus will attack to LINUX as the viruses are very less developed as there are scarcity in users of linux and there is no chance of hacking the password in linux like in windows this is because of the greater security used in the linux ....

linux stores the password by making use of shadowing .. so upto this time nobody is unable to hack the password ...

DNS is the primary name resolution service for Windows Server 2003. Active Directory depends on DNS for domain controller location, and DNS influences Active Directory domain naming. Thus, to fully understand Active Directory, it helps to understand how DNS acts as an integral component in the design of Active Directory.

DNS provides Active Directory with both a name resolution service for domain controller location and a hierarchical design that Active Directory leverages to provide a naming convention that can reflect organizational structure.
Typically, a DNS domain namespace deployed to accommodate the Active Directory mirrors the Active Directory domain namespace. In cases where there is an existing DNS namespace prior to Active Directory deployment, the DNS namespace is typically partitioned for Active Directory, and a DNS subdomain and delegation for the Active Directory forest root is created. Additional DNS domain names are then added for each Active Directory child domain.
DNS data is used to support the location of Active Directory domain controllers also. During or after the creation of the DNS zones used to support Active Directory domains, the zones are populated with DNS resource records that enable network hosts and services to locate Active Directory domain controllers.

What is the acitiv dirctry

Dear , friend

Active Directory (AD) is a technology created by Microsoft that provides a variety of network services,

Active directory is a directory service used to store information about the network resources across a domain and also centralize the network.

DNS stands for Domain Name Server. These are the servers that match up a fully qualified domain with the proper IP address. This is necessary because computers only understand the IP address for your domain (eg- 123.45.678.90).

Outlook express file recovery tool

Have a look at this follow the instructions it should make it all better.

MailNavigator can cope with the task of restoring out-of-order dbx files when Outlook Express itself cannot read them and when a range of other programs are not capable of restoring the information contained in these files. These situations can happen because of viruses, computer breakdown, power interruptions and many other reasons, leading to errors in the file system.
If your computer crashed, first of all you should make sure you have backup copies of your dbx files as well as of all other important data. It's good if you make backup copies of your data on a regular basis. But, unfortunately, in our experience situations are often encountered where there is already nothing to restore.
The process of data recovery from dbx files includes two stages:

If your Outlook Express program is properly installed and tuned, MailNavigator will automatically find the dbx files from the information in the systems register. In this case you can load the dbx files from the Information Retrieval page by double clicking on each of them. Or search for messages in these files using the search system.
If MailNavigator cannot automatically determine the location of the dbx files (for example if these files are on a CD), first you have to find them using search tools, and then load them into MailNavigator using the menu command:
File | Load External Mailbox...
eudora1.gif Once you've read the messages, select the ones that should be exported back into Outlook Express. You can use various filters to select the messages. If you want to export all the messages browsable in the Navigator at once, use the menu command:

Message | Select All
Having selected the messages, export them using the menu command:

Message | Save as...
eudora2.gif In the opened dialogue box, indicate the file and export path, and choose the file type: Eudora mailbox.
When the command is executed, there will be files in the export directory with extensions .toc and .mbx, and also a file descmap.pce. If there are attached files in the exported messages they will be saved in the subdirectory Attach.

Once the mailbox in Eudora format is created, open the program Outlook Express and use the menu command:
File | Import | Messages...
In the opened dialogue box, as the program from which the message is imported, select: Eudora Pro or Light:
In the next dialogue box indicate the directory in which you put the messages from MailNavigator at the export stage:
Further, if Outlook Express finds mailboxes in this directory, it will suggest you select one of them for import:
All that remains to do is to press the Finish button, and a folder containing the imported messages is created in Outlook Express. hope this helps

You should always run Windows Update until your system is fully patched.
