comment Can not execute Heroes of Neweth binary file
The first line of output looks like the output of dd ( a data copying program ), it must have been called in the shell script, the second line is about a different file it ends -bin this is the file that can not be executed. It must have been created by the shell script, then the script tried to run it, but because of a bug in the script, it is not executable (or wrong executable type, try ldd of this file).

comment Linux with VM Windows guests in kiosk mode
A note about your boot option: Visual studio C++, is non standards compliant. I have had no end of trouble with the minority of people that leant C++ on windows, always complaining that the compiler is broken (because it does the correct think, there as Microsoft C++ does not). Why not give then an option to use Linux, gcc is the most popular and best C/C++ compiler.

comment Linux with VM Windows guests in kiosk mode
Using VMs is a good idea, however not that VMs are not multi-boot. With VMs you keep the host running, and then select the VM, either after login or with the display manager.

comment How to find a file on Windows in linux using the terminal
Does putty have a file transfer mode. Openssh has scp copy over ssh, and sftp an ftp like interface over ssh. The implementation on the client, does not depend on any thing special in the server, just a normal ssh server. So was wondering if putty has something like this.

comment What are high memory and low memory on Linux?
I believe that what you say about high/low memory is wrong: I believe that in a pure 32bit system, the kernel can access the full 3GB of user space directly (kernel can access kernel space and user space). However when you have a PAE kernel things get more complex, now you have more than 3GB of RAM, each process can be 3GB, and you can not access the whole of user space directly. This is where high mem and that 128MB of memory in kernel space, comes in. With a 64bit kernel it gets simpler again, no high men, as all user space is accessible from the kernel.

comment stop an external hard disk from being in group floppy
That looks like it will do what I want. Can I use disk labels (the things that appear in /dev/disk/by-label).

comment How to recover linux user password?
If there was a magic back-door, then there would be no point having a password. But there is a back-door, it is as described here, boot-up from a different media. (Having a bios password to stop user from selecting a different boot device can make this more secure.)

comment Run two interfaces on one network card
Note: Android is not based on Linux: Linux is often mistakenly used to mean Gnu/Linux (a Free (as in freedom) Unix operating system), this site also uses the word that way. Where as Linux is a kernel that is used in this system, and also used in android. Therefore android uses a (modified, though most have those modifications are now in the main line) Linux kernel, but is not based on Gnu/Linux.

comment How to suppress input overrun messages
Why disconnect (close)? Every time you disconnect, you will have to resynchronise. Your current synchronisation code seems to be “abort if not synchronised”,
