Dual boot Linux and Vista
I'm not a stranger to dual-boot, but with prior versions of Windows! I also am aware that there are possible problems when the Vista version I have comes with a recovery CD and not an OS CD.

Backup to DVD
I want to do some simple backups to DVD. I just want to copy files directly - I don't want them in tars or zips or anything like that. I'd like a program that can cope with more than one DVD and will prompt for disc changes. Something like this: $ perfectbackup /home /dev/dvd Measuring size of /home.... 500GB... 21 Dec 2008 05:20
Backup recommendation
Dear All, I've just acquired a little HP Pocket Media Drive. I'd like to use it to backup /home, and I could do with some software recommendations.

Using an old 84-key keyboard under X
Hello everyone, I've been using an old 84-key IBM AT keyboard with my Linux boxes for a decade. It hasn't been directly supported in X configurations for as long as I've been using Linux. All the keys that exist on the keyboard give me the characters that are marked on them except backslash (\), which give... 17 Dec 2008 20:26

Linux + serial port
I seem to have run out of serial ports (/dev/ttyS[01] on the motherboard are both in regular use) and I've just discovered that a Windows app under WINE 1.1.9 can't see a USB<->serial adapter.
