comment Is LILO still usable on modern PC?
I remember using LILO around 2010 or 2011 on a then-current Core 2 Duo. I guess it should still work (disconsidering UEFI etc..), the PC architecture has not changed that much.

comment How can I administer a server if USB disabled?
Why do you want to disable the USB? The performance gain will be small (if it happens at all), you will save at most a few MB RAM.

comment why 2TB external HDD is recognized as 800 GB only in Ubuntu 8.10
Ubuntu 8.10 is ancient, maybe it has problems with larger HDs.

comment Possible to move boot files?
This question is quite confusing. Is Linux installed in the laptop's internal hard drive or on the external one?

comment Strange processes: “pro” and “proh” and slow Internet
I'd backup and reinstall the system, it might have been hacked. Usually binaries (except for the kernel) aren't in /boot and don't reappear by themselves.

Iceweasel is Firefox, just with different branding due to trademark issues.

comment What are the platforms that Linux is being used frequently on besides x86?
I don't have statistics, but I'd assume Linux is used frequently on ARM (specially given that most Android phones use ARM CPUs).

comment Why is my PC freezing while I'm copying a file to a pendrive?
+1: it worked perfectly for me too. I always wondered why my system became unusable when copying stuff to an external HDD, now has a workaround.

comment File System in Linux
You seem to be asking unrelated things. Even if you build your kernel with filesystems builtin (i.e. not as a module), you will need a file system for the operating system itself.

comment Isn't /boot a separate mount?
The boot loader is located at the start of the boot device, and it eventually will need to load other code (the boot sector is quite small), at least to load the kernel. Some older BIOSes used to have problems with this, thus it was needed for /boot to be the first partition in the drive.

comment Isn't /boot a separate mount?
None of my computers have EFI, thus I forgot about it. Thanks for noting!

Well, it looks rather suspicious. Do you see any suspicious logins in your log files?

comment Internetless/Remote Arch Install
Well, you could just get an USB Wi-Fi adapter that is supported by Linux and use this at least temporarily.
