How to create a partition on an external USB drive?
Toshiba Tablet XP Home/Student with plenty of memory. I have the
program DriveImage XML. At one point it says to create a partition
somewhere for the image it's going to create. I have a 40G external
plug and play HD. I'd like to create a partition on it without
disturbing other files and folders I have on it. There's plenty of
free space. Various resources say use XP Disk Management to create
that partition. So when I go there it appears as they say but when
they say click on the free space choose the selection "Create new
partiton." I have right clicked ...PNG files not displayed
I have a problem where PNG files I insert into Publisher aren't correctly
displayed. The image place-holder is visible, but no image. Other graphics
file-types are fine, but not PNG's. Another user with identical hardware and
software can view the same PNG's without problems. I've tried resintalling
Office and service packs with no success. However, when printing the
publication, the PNG graphics are produced with no problems.
I'm running Office 2003 sp 1.
Thanks in advance!

Use static linking. I don't know where to set the option in VS7, but it used to be under

choice between a dynamically-linked runtime and a statically-linked runtime. I've not had
to make this choice under VS7 so I'm not sure where, in their overly-clever and completely
gratuitous reimplementation of the user interface, this has been hidden.

I'm often sharing files on a network drive with someone. Often, one
of us knows that we don't need to open a file for modification, and we
only need read-access. Is there a way to open a file in read-only
mode so that when someone does need to open it for modification, the
read-only user is not blocking that?
If there is not a way to do this native to Windows XP, is there a way
to do it from the three applications that we use most, namely Word,
Excel, Visio? All are 2003 versions.
I used to save files like this in "read only recommended" mode.

Where are you getting stuck?
Of course, if the grid isn't too large and most of the cells will have data,
then you could simply use a two-dimensional array.
For larger grids that will be sparsley populated, there are a couple of
algorithms to consider. A simple one is to create a one-dimensional array
that represents the rows (or columns), and have each item contain or
reference a linked list for all items in that row (complete...Force command to run for each computer in txt file list of compute
