Make lynx stop trying to open tar.gz files

It used to be the case that when using lynx (from linux) if I browsed to a tar.gz file, it would ask me where I wanted to save the file. In recent versions, lynx seems to have changed its behavior. Now it attempts to open the tar.gz file... which seems really stupid. How can I make it go back to the old behavior? [more inside]

Unix Logging

Linuxfilter: I have a third-party app which writes occasional messages to its logfile. The problem is I dont know when these messages are logged. There is no timestamp - just the message. Is there any way I could force a timestamp? Maybe some trickery with 'tail-f' and 'date' and pipes into some new pseudo-logfile? Thanks.

Simple (I hope) question: I'm thinking that in the next year I might buy a Mac. I'm also interested in Linux, though, and I've thought about buying a "white box" PC to run Linux and open-source apps. I don't really understand the relationship between OSX and 'nixes all that well. Does OSX run Linux-type programs too? (TIA)

Backing up to DVD under Linux

I've got a ~40G filesystem on a Linux machine. I'm looking for a solution that will let me backup to 4.7G DVD blanks - e.g., fill one disc, tell me to put in another, etc, until all of the data is copied to disc(s). I can do this easily with Dragon Burn under OSX with its "Span discs" option, but I'd like to find something similar for Linux. I know about cdrecord/proDVD, but last time I checked it didn't offer anything like this. Any suggestions?

I miss OS X

I switched over from my Windows desktop to a Mac, and I loved it. Unfortunately the Mac had to go back to it's original owner. I've tried various distros of Linux and none of them seem to satisfy my OS X addiction. Can anyone recommend an OS that will tide me over until I can get the money for another Mac?

Vector drawing program for Linux

I will soon be acquiring a Linux box as an alternate (and, one hopes, eventual replacement) for my main Windows machine. I have open-source replacements for most of my main software applications -- except for vector-based drawing. I currently use Corel DRAW (and have used Freehand and Canvas in the past), mostly for RPG-related drawings. What /good/ vector programs are there in the Linux world? Does the choice of GNOME/KDE make a difference (I know KDE has a vector program with it, but don't know a thing about it)?

Which Linux Certification?

I am trying to break into the Linux Server Administration field so I have been doing quite a bit of studying lately. I figured while I am studying the subject I might as well work towards a related certification. I am leaning towards the Linux Professional Institute Certification. Other certifications I am considering are CompTIA’s Linux+ and Red Hat’s RHCE. So which Linux certification is the best? I would say Red Hat is the most reputable of these three but I am concerned that their certification might be too Red-Hat-centric, and I don't want to be locked into one distro. Which one is the easiest/cheapest to obtain? Which is the mostly highly regarded in the industry? Are there others that I missed?

How can I save a hosed Windows partition from Linux?

My FAT32 Windows partition melted the other day; attempting to boot it now results in errors citing "nonvalid links" for most files on the system, unspecified errors, and a reboot. Fortunately a Linux partition on the same disk was unaffected and I've been able to use it to back up my data. Since the data is still accessible (nothing I've checked so far seems to be corrupted) I'm wondering if there is a way to rebuild the index/toc/whatever it is that's resulting in "nonvalid links" from Linux rather than having to reinstall everything. I've never really used Linux for anything other than playing Tuft Racer and growing disillusioned about the promise of open source, but my guess is that the solution involves fsck. My efforts in that vein have been stymied by the error: fsck: fsck.vfat: not found and I don't know how to rectify that. Thank you AskMe I love you all in advance and I was just kidding with the open sores jab. Please, I am writing this in emacs, send help

MP3 Players with Linux and/or Win98SE

My elderly PC boots up into either Win98SE or (preferably) Linux. I'm thinking of buying an MP3 player, such as the 20GB Rio Karma or Archos GMini XS200. I've just sent off for a USB2.0 controller card, as it seems this is the interface of choice for peripherals these days. Will I have any issues seeing the MP3 player? Will it show up as a removeable drive, or will I have to install extra software? Do I need to check which MP3 players are compatible with linux?

Linux on an OLD Mac

This may be more of a Slashdot question, but as those super geeks would rip me to ribbons; I am asking yall instead. I have recently become enamored with the idea of running MK Linux or PPC Linux on an old beige Macintosh. What is the best distro to use? What is the ideal beige Macintosh model (Performa 5200CD?) Have any of you actually done this? Is ALL the hardware supported? Any horror stories? Thanks!
