Concepts

After a kernel is rebuilt it is usually "activated" with the 'lilo' command.
Lilo can boot operating systems on different drives as well as different partitions.
A device which works with one Linux distribution, may not necessary work with others. (Although it usually does)
An "unsupported" device typically only means that your particular distribution does not include a driver.
Spreading system and user files on different file systems can be safer than a single filesystem.
Having twice as much swap as you do ram is a common recommendation.
PC BIOSs are limited to 1024 cylinders.
Unlike DOS, Linux can created multiple primary partitions.
The root user can configure cron to run jobs as a particular user by placing them in /etc/crontab.
On busy systems cronjobs might end up being skipped if they are run every minute.
Each entry in the /etc/printcap file consists of single logical line.
