comment What purpose is there in handling PPPoE on the router, rather than the modem?
+1 It also makes the modem a 'dumb' bridge, which may help with administration. Now all config is in the router, giving a single point to investigate on failure.

I don't believe this is what he asked for, this installs on the hard drive. The OP wanted a bootable USB drive.

comment Why can I ping an IP address but not 'traceroute' it?
Ping is ICMP as well, it doesn't explain the difference. I have the advantages of reading other answers that state traceroute can use udp as well, which i didn't know before.

comment Cron fails to run bash script
@Damir, remember you can't do 'ls /dev/tcp', it's something in bash only. Can you do 'cat < /dev/tcp/somehost/chargen'. If not, you need something like netcat, or compile your own.

comment How do you identify a zombie process?
Zombies are already dead, waiting for parent to read their status. Killing them, with any signal, doesn't do anything. It's not a process, just a process slot. Killing the parent (PPID) makes init (PID 1) the zombie's parent, which then reaps it (reads status) - zombie gone.

comment 32-bit vs. 64-bit systems
Good explanation. 32 bit Linux has the ability to have individual apps have their own (nearly) 4gm memory space. I don't think Windows allows this.
