comment 'mysql' user and group creation, ownership settings
@Hanan N.: typically most installers will do this at the same time as creating the users (i.e. when they're running as root). But /data/tmp is NOT a default path for any mysql data files - if you change the paths after installation, then you need to make suer that the new locations are accessible.

comment Use find and tar together
Why bother with tar if you're only putting one source file in each archive. Just....find /home/log/2011/10 -name "acct.201110[0-9]" -exec bzip2 {}; and tarring the compressed files, although slightly less efficient than compressing the archive is more robust.

comment What linux is best suited for people new to computers?
"Computers here are..." rather implies that they won't be installing / configuring the systems themselves - Puppy is different from conventional Linux in a number of ways (which IMHO add value) but the UI is what you tell it to be.
