comment How to disable energy saving on notebook screen when using Scientific Linux 6.3?
Could you examine its brightness ACPI settings? Maybe echo 10 > /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness does something (then the problem might be cornered)

comment Making the keyboard eject switch work
I was just trying to find out what could be the reason for your eject key causing the eject button display on screen while failing to actually eject the cdrom... What's your desktop environment? The cdrom isn't mounted, right?

It might try to call eject -- have you installed that? (Does eject /dev/cdrom in a terminal work?)

comment How to create a virtual file that is coupled to a program, e.g. to a `.gz` file via `gzip`?
As it doesn't seem completely unrelated, I'd like to point out that some filesystems (among them Btrfs, Reiser4 and ZFS) support (per-filesystem) transparent compression

comment Debugging Linux Kernel with QEMU
Try using a minimal filesystem (i.e. try debugging the kernel in its normal environment). What bug is it you're trying to get rid of? (A panic caused by no root file system doesn't quite qualify as a bug (unless what you're trying to do revolves around initrd))

comment Debugging Linux Kernel with QEMU
This blog post describes the use of QEMU to debug the OpenBSD kernel but could still be helpful, just replace the OpenBSD-specific parts with the Linux ones. (The author uses a complete system image to debug the kernel; he doesn't just use a kernel only.) What exactly is the step you're stuck with?

comment What is rsh.rlogin and How to remove rsh.rlogin
Had a look at what Wikipedia proposes "Rsh" might be? Remote Shell sounds like something a security pro might advise you to disable... I don't know RHEL, but maybe editing /etc/xinetd.d/rsh is a solution (look for disable).
