RE: Unwanted programs on Win2K

I, personally, have a tendency to SSH home during class
to read up on email and such whenever it gets a little
boring.  There's also times when I 'su' while logged in 
remotely from school.  I know I don't want anyone getting my 
root passwords.

You could use sudo for most things that you need root access for.  Then you
would only have to worry about your password being comprimised.
