Do you know electronics? You need to know the pinouts (and ideally, the schematics) for every chip that goes into a computer, including the CPU, the RAM, the ROM (BIOS), the chipset, and the various other "glue" chips that piece these discrete parts together. You need to know how to make a modem, how to make a monitor, how to make a printer, and how to make a scanner, from nothing more than raw materials like steel, plastic, and sand.

Do you know programing? I don't mean programming in BASIC or even C or Fortran; You need to know bit-level programming, the specifics of how to make a BIOS and an operating system, from scratch, from absolutely no code at all.

Do you know communications? You need to know how IP, TCP, UDP, ICMP, IGMP, PPP, HDLC, ATM, and Frame Relay work, at the bit-by-bit level.

Until you know all these things, you don't really know computers. Until you can make a whole computer from materials buried in your own backyard, you won't *really* be a computer expert. There's always more to learn out there. The world needs people who can contribute to society as a whole by really understanding how these machines work, and not just bowing to control by a few megacorporations that make the hardware and software that make up the computer. If you want to be a computer techie, you need to learn all you can.

Of course, if you're not a computer person and you just want to be an end-user, well, there are plenty of other fields that need similarly knowledgeable experts too...

Yes, We Can!

I'm so glad you asked me this. But here's a question back to you.

What exactly do you consider hacking in the first place?

If it's the usual stuff you see in movies, it's hollywood. Real hacking means to be able to make use of system or a device (gizmo) in a way in which it was never intended (my own definition). And usually it takes form of using network systems to take control of resources in which it was never intended.

So as, to your question, my answer will be Yes. You can make use of the cmd promt to perform certain actions that are built into the OS but were not intended to be performed in such ways. But if you mean, can you take over a friends computer in the other part of town by simply using CMD utitlity from you XP or Vista, then the answer is no. (but you can come close )
