comment Can a motherboard that supports multiple CPUs run with fewer CPUs than it supports?
@Kronick: I have a (very old) Pentium II 300 MHZ Dual CPU system here. That system came with a 'blank cpu card' that should be used when only 1 CPU was installed. I never used it though.

Given this mentality I would recommend reconsidering what you are trying to do. Perhaps several 'small' systems can do the job just as fine when compared to a single 'big one'. Small systems are 'commodity' and are generally cheaper when compared to special multi CPU systems.

comment Bash snippet to move all files in a directory into that directory
You're right. So i guess this should be augmented with -print0 and -0 flags to fix.

The 'only' problem with this is that if the total expansion of the command becomes too long (i.e. too many files, too long names) this will no longer work.

So instead of trying to mv new_directory to itself (Original question) you are now trying to move . and .. into new_directory.

comment Loosely securing Linux for students to learn on
Yep, you're absolutely right. It's always good to check all possible solutions to see if such a solution can work in the specific situation at hand. Given the fact that there are only students doing assignments the teacher dictates the required tools. Any additional usefull tooling can be added to the reinstall script.

The worst advise ever. Win 7 being 64 bit does not mean the 32 bit malware won't run.

I have exactly this running. Works like a charm .... although no one uses it. ;)

comment Howto setup Cobbler with PXE if you can't change the dhcp server?
I've done the installation using a CDROM (iso image generated by Cobbler!) as you suggested and that worked quite nicely. I now have the setup in an almost isolated area where I can unplug it from the LAN, enable DHCP, deploy via PXE, disable DHCP and plug in again. Given the fact that this is a test/experiment environment it will have to do for now. I've also looked at other "proxydhcp" options but none seemed to have code beyond 2004 ... i.e. dead unmaintained code. Thanks for the feedback.

Clarified some terminology.
