comment How to dualboot Windows 8 and Linux on HP laptop
I solved it by doing something like this. The SYSTEM partition contains the Windows boot loader, so it shouldn't be touched. GRUB is installed to the first partition created by the Debian installer and setup to chainload the Windows bootloader.

comment where does root (/) mount point exist — linux
The partition containing the root file system with all your files and directories is on your hard drive and this partition is mounted at the directory that is /. It is not mounted into RAM. Whenever a process refers to a file in that file system, a system call is made to the kernel and it will talk to the disk through a low level interface that the disk understands.

comment How to send an `xmessage` as root remotely to regular user logged in with 'x' session?
@PeterSnow Also bear in mind that the X forwarding isn't strictly necessary, it only adds to security of the connection. You should be able to do it with only xhost and exporting DISPLAY to the remote.
