comment Can I make SYSLINUX load a root fs from an image file on an NTFS partition?
Yes, the root file system is writable. Of course only within the bounds of its fixed image size.

comment Windows7 How to gather windows from secondary monitor
Doesn't work for me either. Win7 here. Maybe because the app in question is either minimized or fullscreen, but never a window.

Both the master as well as the sub-key are valid key PAIRS with public and private key. The abbreviation for the private master is 'sec', for the private sub-key 'ssb'. Both can be seen with gpg --list-secret-keys. The listings given above show only public keys returned by gpg --list-keys.

You are right. Please exchange "encryption" with "decryption" in my comment. But the point remains valid. You sign more often then you DEcrypt. I asked this question to find out about exactly the "probably good reasons" you mentioned.

l suppose for most people the signing key is used way more often then the encryption key, as almost all mails will be signed but only some will be encrypted. In this case, the gpg-default is the wrong way around, as the encr. key is easy to change while the signing key is not.

comment Computer will not boot from any disc
Have you validated that the boot CDs work on another computer? If you come as far as loading the kernel + initial ramdisk, the boot loader worked and the partition is accessible. Can you rule out a hardware defect? (RAM module fault? IDE device/controller fault?)
