message stating that the drive is full, when I can see that drive still
has more space on it?
A: Some drives have a
quota, a limit on the amount of disk
space that a user may use. By simply looking at the disk size and free
space in Windows Explorer, you will see the statistics for the entire disk, not
just your allotted portion. To check the true amount of space that you are
using, open the I drive in Windows Explorer, select all files (ctrl + a), right
click over one of the files (making sure that all files stay selected) and
choose Properties. This will add up the file size for all files selected.

the internet in the Geography Department?
A: If you have a wireless card, you can connect in most rooms with
Windows to the wireless network. You will have to log on the Walk-up
Internet Port Authenticator using your Gatorlink account username and
password. If you do not have a wireless network card or wish to use
ethernet, you need to do: 1). Ask the departmental contact person to submit
your laptop's MAC address (not the wireless card's) to CLASnet for
addition to the CLAS DHCP table via online form. 2). Install Netware Clients;
3). Plug-in your computer after your MAC address has been approved.

button to open Windows Explorer so that you can navigate to the appropriate
folder, where the program or file is located. (For example, if you want to
point a shortcut to Internet Explorer you would usually enter "C:\Program
Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE" as the target.)
