Sometimes it's worth lying to them.  Just say you have Windows, but
you're not at the PC, and you just need to know what options to set.

I've stopped one "support" person from giving me the click on this,
click on that, routine, and just asked them for the connection and
service details I needed to plug into my system.  I think you could
almost hear the relief as several minutes of explanations just got side
stepped into just having to tell me about three or four parameters.
