comment fsck an ntfs drive in Linux
Running Debian 6.0.3, just installed ntfsprogs, no fsck.ntfs installed, and when running fsck with -t ntfs, get "fsck.ntfs not found". So don't think the two are related.

Your question and its tags are confusing - is this a canceled torrent or a straight HTTP download?

comment Tutorials on How to set up a linux system from scratch
+1 for LFS. Not such a pain anymore, as they have a live CD that helps you prebuild a chrooted environment. Documents talk you through it all. No other way to really learn about Linux.

comment How can I catch mail that my development server is generating so I can view it, but not send it?
Using postfix, there are two options that immediately spring to mind: rewrite the To: header to a mail address of your choosing (serverfault.com/questions/77668/postfix-rcpt-to-switch) or deliver all mail locally (serverfault.com/questions/94640/…). If you'd prefer to use another OS X app over postfix, please specify in your question.
