comment How to grep ps output with headers
Current process priority, which is based on its past CPU and I/O usage and the user- or system-assigned nice value. Smaller numbers are higher priority. In this case, grep is priority 0 because it was blocked on disk reads and yielded to write its output, and PNetTNetServer.bin is a large number because it consistently uses up its timeslice without blocking. (Scheduling is complex and the details will depend on the exact scheduler being used.)

Why the votedown? .profile vs .bashrc confusion is one of the most common things I see from even experienced Unix/Linux users.

comment Is sendmail caching DNS or getting it via different method than host/dig/nslookup?
@morgant: If you actually changed DNS servers (their addresses, as opposed to their contents), that information is cached from /etc/resolv.conf by libc the first time the resolver is invoked.

comment SSH Fails, /bin/bash: No such file or directory
Well, yes, you need to create a directory for the mount to bind to. It doesn't need to have anything in it (in fact, better if it's empty as anything in it would be inaccessible after the bind mount).

comment SSH Fails, /bin/bash: No such file or directory
Yes. You need the bind mount to get a direct image of it. What's the error with the bind mount?

If it's on the same filesystem then you can use cp -lr /usr/bin /home/matt/usr/bin; that also lets you remove anything you don't want to be available.

GNU ls wants some setup done by scripts in /etc/profile.d. Some programs may also want to see /usr/share/terminfo/*/*.
