Any and all rescue measures including backup and restore options

All the shells - know the differences and how to set the environments
Know what files to change for global user defaults
Know how to setup and or print (lpd and or cups)
Know the default MTA's
Know the differences between ipfw/ipf etc, and how to flush/stop/restart
Know the basics of Apache/httpd (IE: config file, location of config
file, directory structure, etc.)
There are a few that I can think of.
