Dude, you're getting screwed.

A fantastic story of End-User License Agreements (EULA) gone way off the deep end. It seems that Ian Goldberg and Kat Hanna fell into a Kafkaesque tour de farce when they tried to setup their new Dell Laptop. Dell's software license policy required them to agree to accept licenses which they had no way of reading! (Dell suggested they lie, and pretend they had read the licenses).

I'd suggest you go ahead and click through since I can't imagine any court would uphold this bizarre practice. But, then, I'm not a lawyer.
