comment GParted Live on Hard Disk with Ubuntu
As to why I don't use USB or CD... why do I need to hunt down a CD or USB stick when they provide the ability to boot from HD? And how do I know the external media will not have this same problem? The reason I want this is I wanted to use the latest version of GParted. Otherwise, I just use any Linux live CD.

comment GParted Live on Hard Disk with Ubuntu
Thanks - but I think perhaps my current problem isn't clear due to advancing past the inability to boot. Maybe I should repost a new question, rather than making it more complicated. I can boot gparted, and it prompts me for language, input, and video parameters. Then, when trying to start X, it fails no matter what resolution or driver I choose. I did try your suggestion, but there's no "load_video". I added it to a separate line before loading vmlinux.

comment GParted Live on Hard Disk with Ubuntu
Thanks @gogoud; I am using extended/logical partitioning, and using msdos8 was a good suggestion although it didn't seem to be the problem. Guess I may need to dig deeper, and hope I don't fall into a black hole.

comment What is the exact difference between a 'terminal', a 'shell', a 'tty' and a 'console'?
The command line is simply the language used to send commands to the command-line interpreter running in a shell from the terminal/terminal emulator.

comment Not able to configure phpmyadmin in Ubuntu 12.04
This isn't an answer because I don't know anything about any lamp wrappers, but it looks like Apache may not be running, or you are not connecting correctly. Apache is responsible for intercepting php files and translating them to HTML, which is all the browser understands (besides JavaScript).

comment Gnome, KDE, XFCE… which is most simple and customizable?
I think they all are capable of most of what you want, but some may take more work than others to learn and implement the features. I personally use Gnome classic with Compiz and dual monitors, and I use the keyboard a lot. There are shortcuts for moving windows between monitors, to various places on one monitor (like top half, left half, middle full screen, etc. There's also keys Expo, etc. And I believe they all have clipboard managers.

comment Clock skews on remote machines
NTP is the standard for time sync. There were utilities that calculated the drift years ago; I remember source code for Unix at the time, but I don't remember right now what the names were. Search for time synchronization and correction.

comment ssh localhost without password doesn't work on Fedora 14
FWIW, I always use two commands: 1. ssh-keygen -t rsa (or dsa), then 2. ssh-copy-id "username@hostname -p" for rsa. I don't usually use dsa, but I think the second command is something like ssh-copy-id -i /homedirectory/.ssh/id_dsa username@hostname -p.
