RDP to a MS Server

So I've successfully run a few RDP clients. I'm finding that the KDE rdp client works very smooth and fast but their configuration options are not that good. I'm also looking for an RDP client that supports a RDP gateway. Can someone share their experiences with RDP clients and what they think is th...

System Clock?

So there is no battery on board. How does Pi keep the time?
I'm assuming it doesn't.

Is there a built in ntp for debain squeeze or does one need to be install. If so, which is the best one to use?

Re: root password / authentication

I still haven't heard an alternative solution to this.

When I try to launch synaptic package manager it asks me for the administrative password.

I'm all ears to an alternative solution.

BTW, yes in the real world this is a security issue but this is a toy dev board. I'm not so worried.

CPU pegged

I'm using debian squeeze from the PI site. Fresh install.
I loaded synaptic and the CPU is pegged. Not sure why.

I'm pretty new to linux. What tool do I use to see what's going on and what process is causing this?

Extend the partition?

The images in the Raz Pi download library create a 1.8 gig partition.

I'm trying to load some packages and I'm running out of room

How do you extend the partition?
