comment How to sandbox applications?
How safe would it be security wise to run an untrusted application on a virtual machine? I've heard of theoretical exploits which can access the host operating system through the hypervisor and infect it.

comment USB drive install of Ubuntu 12.04 Server fails - can't find components from CD-ROM
Thanks! Yeah they are definitely in the ISO image like that. Strangely I managed to get it working by simply burning to DVD even without renaming the files to their proper extension. Installing from USB though must pick up the errors.

comment Sharing a mounted Truecrypt volume via Samba
Many thanks for this. Got it working with just the mount option to set the permissions. Didn't need to use gksu whatever that is.
