comment Terminal printing carriage return as ^M?? [linux telling me to stop coding?]
Are you sure that an "Enter" in your VM inserts a CRLF? You can test it with: cat > testcrlf && hexdump testcrlf. When this line is executed in the terminal, press Enter followed by Ctrl + D. You should see just 0a in the right column, not 0a0d.

comment Is it possible to store a password on USB flash drive and use USB flash drive to input password?
Remember that a password does not protect your computer from unauthorized access, anyone could insert a Live CD and remove this password and copy files. The best solution is a full disk-encrypted system using LUKS

comment Debian Squeeze 6.0.1 - configuration files missing after ssh installation
All configuration files? Did you mean you wiped the whole /etc directory? Or just /etc/ssh? Does ls -A /etc and l -lA /etc/ssh show any results? Do you mean an "installation over SSH" or an "installation of SSH" (openssh-server or openssh-client?)?

Thanks for the loads of information. You told us which configuration files you've deleted and whether the machine in question was a server or desktop.

comment What Is All Of This Stuff In My Sent Email From Hotmail?
I don't think it's offtopic. From FAQ: "Super User is for computer enthusiasts and power users. If you have a question about … [..] computer software". Since your topic isn't specifically related to the "webmail service" Hotmail, it would fit better here than at webapps.stackexchange.com

comment why do I need the “sudo” in this particular command?
Those packages installs to directories like /usr/bin which are writeable only by root. The programs in the packages make assumptions about the location of files, you cannot just install those packages in, say, your home directory. Can't you just compile the packages on a machine on which you've the compiler tools available, and move them to this machine on which you do not have root permissions?
