I suspect that you *really* mean WPA and not DRM, right?
Newbie confusion on his side, most likely... Doesn't really know what he

This thread might seem confusing but I am a newbie only to VirtualBox.
I have been using computers since the early 1980's. I have been using
Linux on and off since the late 1990's. I have never gotten a virus
because I am aware of the risks, that is why I use Linux to access the
Internet. By the way, although my area of study is very narrow
(software debugging, testing and verification) I have an advanced degree
in that area. Granted, I might be a VirtualBox newbie but I am far from
being a newbie to computers.
I have to observe the VM carefully since I know that is is a
Oh boy, I think that you are playing with fire ol' boy.
You don't seem to know the difference between VB and VM.
Do you mean VM as in what you stated in one of your first posts to

Yep. And he is posting all this on a somewhat public mailing list that
is archived. Convenient for lots of copyright enforcement people out
Sheesh.....You can disable both in a normal installation of
Windows XP any way.....
This makes it really dangerous as a stand alone OS but for a VM
(particularly for home use) it seems OK. Only time will tell.
(You're really kinda 'stumbling in the dark' about this whole thing
aren't you? :-( )
Stumbling in the dark, yes... next to a very steep and high cliff...
kind of fun to read here. Definitely made my morning smile.
