comment permissions 755 on /home/<user>/
The bit about using Alice's Perl script is terrifying. Copy the script to your home directory, audit it, and then only use your copy.

Debian doesn't have it out of the box, but Ubuntu does.

comment How many entries are created when you make a new directory in *nix?
It is three - think of mkdir /test - /test links to itself (.) and its parent (..), and then / now links to /test. Indeed, /test has two entries inside of it, but three entries total are created.

comment How many entries are created when you make a new directory in *nix?
I like Gilles answer better - a brand-new directory has two links to it, but creating a new directory creates three new entries in the filesystem: . and .. in the new directory, and the actual link to the new directory, in its parent directory.

comment How to suspend and bring a background process to foreground
@Tim Just type the command as you normally would. As long as the job is backgrounded, it is not reading what you type - your shell is. What you type might look broken up to you, but the shell will understand it just fine.

Does your laptop's display selecting key (Fn + F2 on my HP Mini 110) do anything?

comment Why is a drive mounted already at /mnt ? Is this ok?
Regarding your last line - it should be noted that these files will only be temporarily unreachable. When you unmount the device, you'll get the files back.
