comment How do I check whether I am using KDE or Gnome?
Since you can have both Gnome and KDE installed on the machine, and have access to both sets of programs in your menus, the first suggestion is not a foolproof method. The About panel is most likely the useful answer.

comment Using different xstartup files with VNCServer on Ubuntu
Are the scripts executable? DO you get any error messages in $HOME/.xsession-errors? Are the scripts found in the current PATH? Perhaps you'll have more success if you use full path spec such as "exec $HOME/.vnc/startupOne".

comment Symbolic links in root
Yes, but once you are rolling scripts with a naming scheme of /<machine>/path/to/file, you often need to have the extended name in the path, even when pointing to the local maching.

You could setup the vncserver with a smaller geometry than default and tweak the startup file to run the music app full screen.

comment Recovering files from laptop with XP that won't boot
I would strongly recommend first using a LiveCD in order to backup the drive and make sure your data is safe before trying to reinstall the original OS.

comment Is it possible to identify from where email was sent?
I don't understand what you are asking about in "override the server" - the originating server? Are you asking how to block their email?
