dircolors is something I would like to hate. It is so nice, though. I found some handy workarounds if you find yourself straining to see some of the colors because you, perhaps, opted for a light background color.
There are a few ways to go about this depending on your flavor of system.
First, you will need the existence of a light background dircolor file. Many times this can be found as /etc/DIR_COLORS.lightbgcolor .
One way to get this to work is to set an environment variable
eval `dircolors /etc/DIR_COLORS.lightbgcolor`
Another way to get the behavior, on some flavors of *nix, is to link this file to a dot file in your home directory.
ln -s /etc/DIR_COLORS.lightbgcolor ~/.dir_colors
One of the worst things about NTFS as far as I am concerned is forcing permissions on removable media, when those permissions can so easily be overridden. Here is how to reset the permissions on removable media from windows 7.
- start up cmd as administrator
- takeown /f d:\path /r
- icacls d:\path /reset /T
d:\path is the drive and path to the file or directory you want to reset.

Here is the REALLY CRYPTIC way to re-scan a scsi bus in Linux.

Have fun with that one.
There are some commands that are used to create and manipulate logical volumes.
- fdisk -c /dev/cciss/c0d1 #partition raw disk
- parted /dev/sdb #for >= 2TB logical drives
- mklabel gpt
- mkpart primary 4096 6000GB
- toggle 1 lvm
- mkfs /dev/sdb #format to Volume manager disk
- Select 8e “Linux LVM”
- pvcreate /dev/sdb /dev/sdc #create a physical volume
- vgcreate groupname /dev/sdb #give it a group name, add as many PV’s as you need.
- lvcreate –name lv_name -L size groupname #size is like 200M or 3G, etc.
Other useful commands
- lvscan #brief listing
- lvdisplay #detailed listing
- lvremove, vgremove, pvremove
