"Dear Lina,
As the Systadmin for an engineering firm, I am currently using an IP masquerading server to allow our company's internal 10.1.x.x IP addresses internally to talk to the world, and it works great for short lived or busy connections like http or ftp file requests. However, I do have problems with other things like telnet and ssh connections. The server seems to be dropping connections at various random intervals. Where do I start to diagnose this problem?..."

"Dear Lina,
My mother just mailed me a Windows floppy holding digital photographs of my new cousin. I put the disk into the floppy drive on my Linux system, typed mount /mnt/floppy, and the disk mounted fine. However, when I used ls to view the directory, I was rewarded with a contradictory message listing filenames along with the error "No such file or directory"! What am I doing wrong? Other disks in this same drive work just fine."
