comment Successfully concatenating multiple videos
It may be a stupid shot, but does the length of a single-slide video and the mp3 used with it match exactly?

@Molly - fair enough, I see your point :)

I'm more familiar with GRUB, so I'd recommend this boot loader over LILO. If you install Windows7 first and then Ubuntu with GRUB, then GRUB should automatically find Windows7 boot partition. You'll be presented with a menu each time, to choose which system to boot into.

@Molly - newer distributions of Ubuntu make mounting NTFS (Windows) partitions rather trivial - after fresh installation, there are icons of NTFS partitions on Ubuntu desktop; double-click mounts the desired partition. Hence I think that a separate fartition for shared files wouldn't be needed at this point.

comment Bash Man Page: kill <pid> vs kill -9 <pid>
I would add that the KILL and STOP signals are so-called non-catchable signals. That means when a TERM signal is sent to a process, it is able to catch it and perform various "shutdown" operations it needs to do. The KILL signal stops the process immediately.

comment Where's Windows XP standard MIDI SoundFont?
I managed to solve my problem on my own (look below). I tried to stuff my answer up with some links and explanations - maybe others will find it useful. Thank you for your concern :)
