XP under linux
I'm not a total noob, but the thing I want to do is way beyond me.
I want to have so called parental control no my PC. I see it as booting linux then running XP in a seamless way. So the user will not have to do anything or even know. Not knowing is totaly optional, as user will be aware that their activities are recored. And the host will have to log activity as much as possible. Network, keystrokes etc.
Is it even possible and how hard can it be.
XP can run its own set of logging software to have everything logged.
What is the point of booting Linux in the first place?
Or, is Windows *really* needed? Much can be done with Linux now that once was solely the province of Windows...
i'm sure you have your reasons, but knowing them will help to answer your post.
There are few reasons for keeping XP but two are most important:
- interface familiar to users
- lots of software will run on it, especialy some specialized is XP only(for running machines)
Software must work with hardware, so virtualbox is out
I dont need GUI under linux. I figured that running logging service with linux kernel would be best, since I can hack XP in minutes. So anyone else can do it too. And hardware solutions are easy to temper with and can be disabled. Runnning net trafic through server with alerting via mail is an option, but I dont want to leave a gate wide open.
