comment Can I use authorized keys for user not 'root'
yep. if you never ssh'd as 'normaluser' from that server, you do not have ~/.ssh, so you will have to create it. authorized_keys is usually created by the user himself,so you have to create it too :). There are cases when it is created automatically when user is added, but not without someone setting that up in /etc/skel first.

comment Splitting Company into two separate companies with duplicate IT infrastructure. Need Reccomendations
No, i meant something like quickbooks (most popular small business package). Lets say they have 1 computer that holds both company files and shares via quickbooks group access. You will only be able to have 1 company file open and shared at one time, so they would need one computer for each company, if each company would want to work with their quickbooks file during the day.

comment Can rdiff do incremental backups
you can use rsync --rsh='ssh', so your command would look something likethis: rsync --rsh='ssh' -a --progress --existing --dry-run /dir/to/upload/from/ user@server:/dir/to/upload/to/. You can remove --dry-run and --progress later. pay attention to the / after /dir/to/upload/from/ it will upload the contents of that directory, not directory itself. if you would like to upload the whole directory instead, remove trailing /

Yes, however, I do not know of an accounting package that can open 2 companies at once.

comment Issues with proftpd on ubuntu server
this is a good sign. This means that it is listening on all available IP addresses. Are you running iptables on that server? If so, please explain your setup. Is there a NAT?

comment Best way to monitor a Grid of computers?
Well, Nagios is only as generic as you want it to be. The real value of Nagios is that it can be made to work with anything. So if you figure out how to extract the data you want xml-qstat you can feed it into Nagios. For graphing the data and keeping it for historical purposes you can use Cacti. Again, like with Nagios, you could feed anything into Cacti and get pretty pictures you can show to the management. It's just depends how much effort you want to put into this project.
