5. MbPS Megabits (mb) per second. A bit is either a 0 or 1 (a digit) and a byte is a string of 8 bits. 8 mbps (megabits per second) equals 1 MB/sec (megabytes per second). Therefore 54 mbps is equal to a max of 6.75 MB/second.

6. Converting from a Workgroup to a Domain

For a particular user on a particular computer, all programs installed for all users will still be available whether they log into their computer or the domain. You will have to migrate all other user specific settings either manually or use an automated tool.

Both of which are incomplete so expect to have to manually migrate some application specific settings and data for each user. At a minimum, log into the old local account and migrate My Documents, Desktop, Favorites, and perhaps e-mail such as the Outlook .PST or Outlook Express .DBX files.

9. RAID

RAID is the acronym for a Redundant Array of Independent Drives. RAID specifies several "levels," 0, 1, etc. Different levels provide different options. One level allows you to combine multiple smaller drives into one, huge volume. Another level offers tremendous performance boosts by "striping" data across multiple drives such that reads and writes are split across the drives. If one drive fails, the other takes over until the bad drive is replaced. Once replaced, the RAID subsystem automatically restores the mirror.
