I've installed 2 WinXP's on one machine - one for family stuff and the other only for music. Now, when it comes to music I want to get rid of everything else..virus shields, firewall, Explorer, etc. but since I have a DSL connection I am a bit nervous about hacks and stuff.
So is it enough to disable the network card (I'm running an ancient P3 733) or should I - as a friend suggested- pull the plug on the router every time I am booting for music?
I put in place a pretty simple precaution: a switch to turn off the power to the dsl router. Though I forget to use it sometimes! Seems like disabling the nic under xp would be adequate (though don't really know ...)
