comment CentOS IPTABLES how to block connections from internet and other questions
Only taking a brief look (it's late in the local time zone ;) this seems quiet good. I'd suggest adding multiple REJECT rules at the end, more precisely I'd have rules rejecting with meaningful results depending on protocol (i.e. in this order: -p tcp -j REJECT --reject-with tcp-rst, -p udp -j REJECT --reject-with icmp-port-unreachable, -j REJECT --reject-with icmp-proto-unreachable). I'd prefer making the remote peer believe there is no service running than telling him the service is actively blocked.

comment Why should you not edit the .config kernel configuration file?
That's a rather unsatisfying answer. What if I don't change those files? That's like saying »Don't write your sendmail config yourself, you don't want to do this! You should use m4!« Anyways it would be perfectly fine to write it on your own (there are some really weird guys out there ;) ). The usual case being autogenerating files is not a valid reason for HAVING to use those tools.

comment Check ping statistics without stopping
One slight addition: You can emit SIGQUIT from the terminal by hitting "Ctrl-\", no need to have a second terminal open and use kill.

comment Built the kernel with NFS support but not getting /dev/nfs
Why don't you skip the initrd-part and let the kernel do autoconfiguration? Configure your kernel to have everything needed for booting (network drivers, NFS support, …) built-in and enable CONFIG_IP_PNP_DHCP. Would be much easier than fiddling with an initrd.

comment Unable to SSH into Puppy Linux, even though SSHD is running
Do you have any firewall rules active? Try iptables -vnL, this will show you the active filtering rules. You problem sounds like something is dropping your inbound packets.

comment Read out pulseaudio volume from commandline? (I want: “pactl GET-sink-volume”)
There's a question on Ask Ubuntu with an answer giving a nice perl-oneliner to parse the volume out of this.
