comment md raid1 ext3 and 4k sectors slow with directory operations
I should also add that the lights on the eSATA drives never turn off, md is keeping them quite busy (though I am running things that are likely producing log files)

comment Is it possible to view media on the console?
Those packages write to the framebuffer (hence the fb) via a graphics driver, not strictly the Linux text terminal driver - but it is the "graphics console" in one sense (not sure if that counts as tty). Either way, great find :-)

comment can't ssh into remote host with root, password incorrect
what distribution? Also, are you logging in on a local terminal or trying to ssh as root to localhost? PermitRootLogin doesn't care if you start at localhost.

comment puppet certificate catching error
seems like an ntp server is running on the master. Can you install ntp on the agent and configure it to point to the master (e.g. server MASTERIP in /etc/ntp.conf)?

Are you running ntp? If not, can you run ntpdate pool.ntp.org on both servers?

comment Can I share /usr/local between multiple Linux distributions?
If you're doing a bind mount of /boot, I don't believe that would affect the bootloader unless you try running grub-install or update-grub (depending on the version) and it reads from the newly mounted one. (see linux.die.net/man/8/grub-install). But overall, I believe I have gotten away with running one /boot partition. You will probably want to look at this guide: garron.me/en/linux/… or something similar for dual-booting two Linux installations.
