comment Partitioning & RAID recommendation for a server with 3 disks
Added an explanation about our server failure constraints. Now, is there a benefit to having a /boot on each disk, other than symmetry? And should I RAID0 the boot partitions, or use LVM on them directly, or just have 3 separate partitions and only use one?

And you would suggest this even though for some of my data/files I don't need fault tolerance?

comment Partitioning & RAID recommendation for a server with 3 disks
Should I avoid filling up the volume group with logical volumes, or avoid filling the RAIDed area with the (single) volume group? Or both?

comment make dnsmasq ignore specific entries in /etc/hosts
I guess I can do that, although it simply means duplicating all-but-one-line of /etc/hosts... hmm.

comment make dnsmasq ignore specific entries in /etc/hosts
Setting up and configuring bind, as well as a separate DHCP server, and having the DHCP server and bind communicate, and synchronizing things with /etc/hosts, does not sound like a better solution. Is it more elegant? I dunno.

comment Why is there no (Debian) init.d script for usbipd? Should I write my own?
@MichaelHampton: 1. Do other distributions have an init script for it? 2. I can't believe that's the reason. If I install a telnet server, won't I get an init script for it?

comment Simple, centralized user management on a small LAN - NIS or LDAP?
@MichaelHampton: Why would I need to dedicate a server to this? Other than to have a RedHat-flavor distro?

comment Simple, centralized user management on a small LAN - NIS or LDAP?
@MichaelHampton: I am certainly not going to waste 512MB of RAM for a tiny daemon which runs occasionally doing very little. In fact, I'm not setting up VMs for anything on the server (which is in fact a relatively weak and old machine).

comment Simple, centralized user management on a small LAN - NIS or LDAP?
@Mike: The server's distro is not my choice, and I can't/don't want to use a dedicated server (or virtual server) for this.

From looking at the website, I'm worried it might be tied to RedHat'ish distributions (RHEL, CentOS, Fedora) distributions. Is this true?
