|Here's another question:
I have found as of latley that more and more people are going to wireless communications in campgrounds. Case in point is the RV Resort where I have made my base camp. The wireless network here is fast, and easily accessible where ever I go with my laptop. What is the best ways all of you have found to secure---on your end---a wireless network: OS/2 or Windows XP Professional. I am told the network here is open and does not requier a password.

As you've been told that the network is open, it means that everybody can "see" what your machine is sending and receiving via the network... there's tons of freeware for that.
In Windoze it's quite easy to set up the encrytion and stuff but of course Windows is not safe/secure by default contrary to OS/2|eCS which is quite safe and secure by default. But unless your traffic is not secured, it doesn't matter what operating system you are using.
Windows can be made very safe and secure - if you know what to do... OS/2|eCS is much more secure out of the box, but mostly because the WinNT services also used in XP are lacking...
