comment Is there a CD/DVD disk reading test tool for Linux?
When running md5sum on either the image from the CD or that on the hard disk one should consider the possibility of having trailing zeroes at the end of the .iso file. See this answer for more details.

comment What is the difference between kernel drivers and kernel modules?
@Prabagaran: "All Drivers are modules. All modules are not drivers." This is contradictory. In mathematical terms, what you are saying is D -> M and M -> !D. This allows for D and !D.

comment Installing GRUB to first sector of /dev/sdb damages partition table
Assuming 512-bytes sectors, you are writing to both the first and the second sector. I have never seen the need to use dd on anything else than the first sector (the MBR). A partition could start at the second sector, so you may damage it.

comment Fedora installer doesn't see my Windows 7 partitions
In alternative you can post the output from parted /dev/sda print, but fdisk is fine, too.

comment Debian Kde Iceweasel/Firefox: setting custom protocols handlers
Can you give us an example of the link you click on? Also, clicking on the link should open the "Launch application" window with "This link should be opened with an application - Send to". This should be the easiest way to associate a protocol with a custom application.
