comment How to install yum on Fedora Core 6
yum should be there from the standard installation. If it is not, have you tried installing it from the RPM? What kind of error are you speaking about?

Then you are pretty much out of luck. Backups are a nice thing. You could also monitor this bug report which seems to be related bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=46565

comment Small Scale Point-to-Point Fibre optics
The fiber does not have any special installation demands compared to copper. Being non-conductive it's actually considerably easier to pull them, as you don't need to worry about induction. If you are reusing an old duct make sure the person installing knows what he is doing, as it's easy to destroy both cables when pulling a new one in. For the termination of the fiber you need to splice on a patch panel. This is done with a fusion splicer. They are expensive and requires training, let a contractor do that for you. He can also measure the fiber and give you a protocol.

comment RAID 6 vs RAID 10? Which would you choose
Let me add then: Online backup is not backup. If it is a backup it should be stored on tape/disks and put in a safe somewhere far away from the rest of the systems. RAID does not aid in that.

comment syslog (auth log) reports incorrect time
Reinstalling the server finally removed the problem. Still no idea what caused it.

comment How do I find out details of what software a DNS server is using?
Running nmap against a DNS server can end you up on their "people I don't like list". Don't nmap systems without permission from the administrators.

comment Turning off cp (copy) command's interactive mode (cp : overwrite ?)
Removing the alias is typically "unalias". It is also a bad idea to change the question, as the answers no longer makes sense.

comment Turning off cp (copy) command's interactive mode (cp : overwrite ?)
--remove-destination can indeed help in that case. It's typically an access rights problem if it's needed.

comment Small Scale Point-to-Point Fibre optics
Good advice, even if I would strongly recommend going for SFP's/GBIC's/XFP's and not media converters. Cheap mediacoverters can mangle your datalayer, creating hard to debug situations. It's also one more thing to administrate, power and so on.
