comment Boot problem empty fstab RedHat 3.7
This should work. However, I would wonder how/why /etc/fstab has been truncated. It is possible that the root filesystem is seriously borked, so it might not be a good idea to mount it rw until after a fsck.

comment Fair bandwidth repartition between multiple users
Thanks for the clarifying example. There are a number of related questions in ServerFault that deal with allocation of bandwidth among multiple concurrent users. Check them out: "QoS - split bandwidth across all IPs during high load"; "how can I limit per user bandwidth?"; "How bandwidth is allocated to concurrent users?"

comment Setting up Apache on Ubuntu to server subdomains on LAN
@TomC: I think that should probably be a separate question! The short answer is: consult your DNS server's documentation.

comment VPS minimum RAM requirements
@Bryan: Do you mean that apt-get bails out due to insufficient memory? If so, a couple of things to try: (1) Turn off all unneeded daemons while running apt-get. Things like logging, mail server, sshd, crond/atd, web server, and so on, can all be turned off while you run apt-get. (2) Manually install MySQL's prerequisite packages before attempting to install MySQL itself. That way, apt-get doesn't have to build as large a dependency tree in memory.

comment Tomcat and Apache on one machine with two IP's
@Elmasto: I think you could just configure Tomcat to use port 80 on the virtual interface, thus no messy port redirections are needed.

comment Disk encryption in Debian
+1 for the howto page. Nice! I would only add one thing: Don't forget to securely wipe the original unencrypted data files from the source partition(s) once everything is working in the new configuration. Simply deleting the original files is not good enough, since they could be recovered by scanning the disk. Use shred on the files, or preferrably something like DBAN on the entire source partition, if feasible.
