    No, you are correct. I've yet to see an attribute-"hidden" file (from
    windows) show up as anything other than clear-as-day in Linux. The
    hidden-ness is imposed by windows; Linux is not windows; Linux doesn't do
    the pseudo-hiding.

    Good luck.

    I'm not sure what they are (I assumimg some kind of link) but if you did
    Code:
    rm -r .
    for example it will remove the current directory.

    i'm in close trail on that with you--a cousin said it this way:

    "Getting old is not for wussies!"

    (i'm not sure he used a "w" but the alternative might be nanny-blocked)

    What if there were no hypothetical questions?

    Glad to hear that. Some years ago I "upgraded an XP system to play with the Vista Beta. When I got tired of that and restored XP I lost a lot of information because the file access was all jacked up in the process. I decided then that I would use Linux to back up any MS file systems in the future. Pretty happy with OpenSUSE lately since I got bored with PC games though so it may not be an issue in the future. Still a good ace card to keep in the work life toolbox...

    Removing the directory would be a bad idea, maybe not...I wouldn't be able to boot Windows.

    Alright, I guess I can't see these files since Microsoft has played with the file system unfairly.

    Thanks for the input.
