comment How to restrict ssh users to browse only /home/%u contents
What are the perms on your home dir? For chroot to work with SSH the home dir must be root owned and 755 perm. Check auth.log for some clues.

Can you run export | grep GNOME and post the results. Have you seen this bug?

comment Install programs without an internet connection on Debian
Do you have a .deb for the firmware? If you have use that not the .zip as you have now installed all the dependacies. What trouble are you having unzipping?

comment How to use persistent names in LILO?
I dont think it matters - lilo.conf will be read once when installing and whether it contains root entries by UUID or by dev doesnt matter - its the kernel that understands the "UUID=" options, not lilo. There are even scripts to automatically convert your lilo.conf to using UUIDs, like this one

comment cron to delete after executing
Post your entire first cron script. There is nothing in your wget line that actually executes anything. --delete-after is really not indented for what you are trying to use it for - see the man page.

comment Installing jdk7 on Debian server via SSH
OK so you have a /usr/bin/java that has got there from some other way - probably a manual install. Do ls -laF /usr/bin/java and see what that gives you - does it point to /etc/alternatives/java? If so, please then run update-alternatives --list java and post the results. There are many different ways of getting Java on Debian. Also post the list of directories under /usr/java/

comment Installing jdk7 on Debian server via SSH
/usr/java/ wont be in your path (or indeed /usr/ if you put the java executable directly in there). You already have some varient of java installed which is giving you the 1.6 - probably from a package. Type dpkg -S `which java`, what comes up?
