For a 60th birthday, it's an old Japanese tradition to dress the celebrant in a special red hat and vest (Here's a bonus picture of a cat in said attire). Where can I get a hold of the hat and vest in the U.S. (or some kind of reasonable approximation)? [more inside]
I'm looking for an old(ish) Linux breakout clone. I believe it came installed by default with Redhat (??) and/or KDE. This would be around 10 years ago, give or take. [more inside]
Have an existing install of REDHAT on a first partition, I have created a second partition and am trying to use GRUB to install a second OS (happens to be another version of redhat).

Have you ever installed and used Emacs org-mode? Can you please help me try it? The instructions here are ambiguous, vague, and complicated. I am an Emacs neophyte, so it would be awesome if someone could explain this slowly to me! [more inside]
Okay, all you Red Hat / Fedora hackers - please, please explain to me this probably-very-simple aspect of the way the YUM package manager works. How do I just uninstall something without trashing everything that package touches? [more inside]

Red Hat Linux won't correctly mount USB flash drive. Also cannot send email. (Although I can log into Gmail, just not send email, chat is also blocked.) FTP from Linux machine to other computers is ok, but we cannot FTP into the Linux machine from Mac or Windows. Are these problems related? Help? [more inside]

My father-in-law (retired blue-collar aluminum worker, widowed, fixed-income, screwed out of health benefits when his former corporate employer filed bankruptcy) has an old Win 98 computer. Last year I installed major upgrades and switched him to Redhat Linux. All was well until Cox Cable swapped his old cable modem for a Webstar that is not Linux compatible. Can I get him back on Cox Cable with Redhat Linux without having to buy a new computer? Would a new cable modem work and if so, what brand?

Looking for the component suggestions on what is the "sweet spot" as far as price/performance to build a cheap-ish desktop Linux PC. I've already got a great monitor and a KVM switch, just need to build the box. I'd like to keep the cost in the $500 range. [more inside]

I am responsible for setting up and maintaining a mail server for small web-hosting type business. We currently host about 75 domains, around 100 mailboxes and due to the efforts of our sales team, we are wanting to get ready for some great increases in those numbers. I am worried about my current configuration and ease of administration. More importantly (well, at least to the customers) is email deliverability -- it seems that messages delivered to some big players are being marked as SPAM or disappearing altogether. I am asking for insight and advice on 1) if my current choice of software/configuration is a good match for this situation and 2) if there any additional measures I might take to ensure email deliverability?

At work we use Red Hat linux and I've used Shoutcast to stream music. Today, I tried it on a different computer than normal and got an error reading something along the lines of "digital rights conflict with mpeg1/mpeg2/mpeg3 and Red Hat will now allow you to stream music." Thinking it would still stream (silly me), I clicked the "Do not show me this again" box and now I can't stream anything off any website and can't see that error message to give better details. I also use xmms. Anyone heard of this or know what's up? Also, my normal computer is in use so can't test that one out.
