comment Is it possible to take a snapshot of / (or other) filesystem, like in VirtualBox?
On a more funny note - every time I hear Linux (don't get me wrong - I'll use LVM if I have to) and snapshots mentioned in a single post - I think "you know nothing, John Snow" and create a ZFS snapshot and rollback to it just for fun :)

comment How to change gedit preferences from terminal?
You're welcome! If you want to customise other apps' settings - grep around a bit and there's a chance you'll find their setting there. Good luck! BTW: that's a pretty cool avatar :)

comment Newbie needs some guidance and direction to build a web server
Welcom to askubuntu! I think it will be easier to recommend something to you once you let us know what kind of setup you're after. Feel free to say how would you have done what you want in the MS environment and we should be able to translate this into a useful bunch of tips.

Have you verified this using both versions of file on the same file? Is this reproducible?

comment PPPoE connection not configuring properly
Try using aptitude in place of apt-get - it has some more sophisticated conflict/dependency resolution methods. I'd stick with installing network-manager package first.
