comment RAID 1 on 2 external HDDs
@Pavel Šimerda, while I agree that RAID and backups are two different things, and that the ideal setup is to have your primary data on a RAID and your backup on another RAID (along with a copy on tape, the cloud, and copies in a secure storage facility), home setup budgets put a limitation on this. So if your choice is an extra drive as a mirror OR as a backup, many are better served with the backup option.

comment Automating setting up a Unix server
Kickstart is mostly for Red Hat distributions (RHEL or Fedora, or their derivatives). But it works very well. Once you set up a server manually, you get a file "/root/anaconda-ks.cfg" which is a template kickstart file matching the options you picked during installation.

comment rdesktop - windows 7 - mouse pointer invisible - no black outline
Have you tried downloading and compiling the latest version of rdesktop? I had the same problem, and this worked for me.

comment Linux file contains “@^@^@^@”, how to restore?
If you are absolutely positive you didn't do anything specific that would account for this, then chances are you have some major file system corruption (although I haven't seen this specific error before, where one file contains another file's contents). If that is the case, then I would advise backing up what you have, unmounting the filesystem, and running fsck against it before trying to rely on it any further. But I can assure you that the snippet that you posted is almost certainly from a tar backup.
