How To Use NTFS Drives/Partitions Under Ubuntu Edgy Eft
Normally Linux systems can only read from Windows NTFS partitions, but not write to them which can be very annoying if you have to work with Linux and Windows systems. This is where ntfs-3g comes into play. ntfs-3g is an open source, freely available NTFS driver for Linux with read and write support. This tutorial shows how to install and use ntfs-3g on a Ubuntu Edgy Eft desktop to read from and write to Windows NTFS drives and partitions. It covers the usage of internal NTFS partitions (e.g. in a dual-boot environment) and of external USB NTFS drives.

How to configure OpenVPN to use WiKID Strong Authentication
The WiKID Strong Authentication System is a commercial/open source two-factor authentication solution. This guide demonstrates how to OpenVPN and SSH to use one-time passwords from WiKID. While both solutions support private key authentication, that may not be sufficient for your requirements; you may need one-time passwords for webmail or extranet access; or centralized authentication management and logging.
Building Apache with PHP, MySQL, OCI8 instant client support
There are many howtos on building Apache with PHP, MYSQL support, but it is very rare to find some document on OCI8 support with Apache Build, recently I was building a web server in my data center and I was really in trouble when I was searching some installation document, there are few documents , but most of them are using either RPM version of packages or they are missing some of the essential steps. I am trying to write a howto that will help you to at least understand the installation with step-by-step method.
How To Create A Local Debian/Ubuntu Mirror With apt-mirror

Create A Desktop Background Wallpaper Changer For Xfce
I have switched to Xubuntu a few months ago coming from Kubuntu. In Kubuntu I liked the (already available) option of setting up a list of image files and have them randomly displayed as background image on the desktop. This was one of the things I have missed so far in Xfce. This small howto shows you how you can randomly display background wallpapers in XFCE.
Securing the connection between MySQL and MySQL Administrator using an SSH tunnel
This is a description of how to set up a secure tunnel between your MySQL Server and a locally running MySQL Administrator using Putty. By creating a secure tunnel to your MySQL server using Putty, you can grant localhost access to powerful applications like MySQL Administrator while at the same time, make your server appear as if it isn't even there. In effect, make your MySQL server disappear from the outside world.
OpenVZ On Debian Etch For Webservers
Virtualization is nice! A good practice for servers, since it makes things more secure, scalable, replacable, and replicable. All this at the cost of little added complexity. This guide is written during an install of a Supermicro machine with 2 dual-core opterons (64-bit), 2 identical disks (for RAID) and a load of memory. Why OpenVZ and not XEN or the recent KVM kernel module? Well, XEN is not very stable for 64-bit architectures (yet), and it comes with quite a bit of overhead (every VM runs its own kernel) due to its complexity. KVM is very simple but restricts you to run a kernel as one process, so the VM cannot benefit from multi core systems.
