comment change IP when a CNAME is used
Have you rebooted since changing your hosts file? Also, I think nslookup always makes a DNS query instead of checking the hosts file, but I'm not certain. ping is a better bet.

comment Dns server for specific domain
Yeah - it's not possible for everyone, because of course some people also don't have access to configure their DNS server in work, or it might be just a router or some thing which can't be configured as easily. I mentioned it just because it's possible to achieve this in that way, and in some cases it's an easier solution, especially if as in our case you want to make that alias available to multiple users, or on different platforms (that works on windows too, for instance). Whatever works!

comment Where to find libc.so.0
This is a kind of dirty solution to the problem. Sonames are different usually because they don't export the same symbols any more - in some cases you'll get away with it, in a lot, it will break your application.

comment On Linux, is devices order constant?
Update: The new Udev naming scheme is worth a mention here - a new feature in v197 is "Predictable Network Interface Names" which changes slightly some of the previous information with respect to names like eth0, eth1, and so on. You can read more about that here: freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/systemd/…

comment Where Konqueror keeps its bookmarks?
I'm not certain (hence why this isn't an answer) but you might find some useful thing in ~/.local/{share,} and ~/.config/

This. Make a new server and try not to break this one so carelessly.

comment DIfference between Intel Core and Haswell Intel Core
Haswell is the newest, and you'll benefit from performance and power consumption improvements at the cost of a higher price-tag.

comment Corrupted Hard Drive, what are my options?
Have you tried looking at the drive under linux? The easiest way would be to boot up a liveCD installation and then evaluate what the system tools can tell you about your disk.
