comment Unix: ls, how to sort first directories then files etc
The first one is a bit redundant ... There's really no reason to sort for the directories as it's the order we need to modify not directories ... the 'ls -la | sort -r' is what really works. Basically it's stating ... 1) A) Find . -d 1 -type d (Start from this directory, search one directory depth and search for directories only) B) ls -la (list files all attributes) C) Sort them in reverse 2) Do as 1) just drop the find ... it's not needed ... I actually like Studers' solution better ... :-)

Debian's gnu core utils package version of ls supports the --show-directories-first option ... when I started using OSX I simply grabbed my all my bash dot files from my Debian box and dropped them in my home directory ...

comment Linux: Display output only goes to one graphics card after it starts udev
I'd suggest using both drivers. The first for the ATI card ... and the nVidia for the second. Depending on how you intend to use the three screens, you can then configure how you want the nVidia driver to work ... YoLinux has a pretty good tutorial to walk you through the setup .. yolinux.com/TUTORIALS/LinuxAndDualMonitors.html
