Restoring boot.ini

After crashing my XP box by reformatting the C: drive to install Vista on it (XP was installed on an other drive), I'm posting the content of my local boot.ini file.

;Warning: Boot.ini is used on Windows XP and earlier operating systems.
;Warning: Use BCDEDIT.exe to modify Windows Vista boot options.

Inline Search for IE

Seems interesting, not tested with IE7.

"Inline Search is an extremely useful free add-on for Internet Explorer that mimicks Firefox's search behavior i.e. it turns searching into a web page into a non modal research experience coupled with a search as you type facility. It integrates flawlessly into IE (version 5.5 or above), giving it that little extra that makes you a lot more efficient when you are looking for a specific piece of information."
