comment What distro is the most similar to RHEL 5?
As I said, it's derived from RHEL and is almost identical in practice. That wouldn't preclude the differences in package repository handling.

comment How can I “cat” a file and remove commented lines?
Another one I've done that always stuck with me was grep '^[^;]' filename. I can't speak to its portability though!

comment Tracing RHEL system hack
Generally speaking if they have physical access to the machine you're out of luck, and since they had root they can erase any record of their access. There are some physical security and encryption controls that you can use to reduce the risk of physical access. Look at the CIS RHEL5 Benchmark and the NSA guide for securing RHEL for information on physical security controls.

comment Easiest way to manage users for two machines
Here is how a large organization takes that approach with Puppet and SSH keys. The puppetmaster distributes the local user accounts, ssh settings directory for each user, and sets a password for each user. This can be replicated in just about any config management system, not just Puppet.
