So im fairly new to linux (i just installed RH8 last week). Im not sure exactly where this question is supposed to go, so i put it here. How do make my IP adress invisible? I loved kazaa when i had winblows (even though i think thats what ruined my system), and i plan on using some other P2P software on linux (why else would anyone pay $50 month for DSL?). The thing is, Ive been told that now kazaa users are starting to be subponaed (sp?). Needless to say, i dont want this to happen to me. Is there any way to prevent the feds showing up on my door?
Also related to this question: certain software titles send out something to the company saying that you are or arent registered to use this particular program. I have a burned copy of AutoCAD and 3dStudio that i would like to continue to use, as well as a burned copy of winblows 2000 that i will need to run them. I only intend to connect to the internet through linux. Will these programs still be able to transmit back home, even though they are under a different OS (on a different partition)?
Apologies if this is covered somewhere else, i didnt really know how to search it ;)
