The Mac should boot without a video card. However, a malfunctioning video card will prevent it from booting. If the original card was an 8800GT, search the web for "8800GT bake" for instructions on how to fix it by sticking it in the oven for several minutes. I've done it twice as unbelievable as it sounds and it does work. However, that doesn't sound like ...

It sounds like it might work but in taking about target display mode Apple only mentions an iMac as supported. Target Display Mode Though they do not specifically mention a MacBook as supported or not. It is unlikely that trying it would cause problems (or damage), but I am unsure.

There was a similar issue in 2002 with OS X. I found a few articles about it and I've been able to address this issue by simply adding "local" to the Search Domains in the advanced network properties of my network interface. This has allowed those of connecting via VPN to resolve .local hosts.

Disk Inventory X or WhatSize are both excellent apps for giving you a complete list of what's taking up space. Also, as you described there is a way to start at the root and check the size of each folder, drilling down until you find the culprit. Command-I or Get-Info from the the right click menu will show you the size of any folder or file you select.

Mail will be stored in ~/Library/Mail. Gmail and Yahoo typically use IMAP, which means the messages are held on their server until you delete them. Doubtful that this is what is eating up a big chunk of your drive space; my Mail folder weighs in at just under 9GB for nine accounts, one of which has messages going back 8+ years. There are a few options in ...

Try the migration assistant first. It will move everything you need from your old mac.

Going out on a limb here: How many files are on the drive? FAT32 has a maximum number of files per volume. Assuming that the drive is formatted with 32KB clusters, only 268,173,300 files can reside on a FAT32 drive at once. Is the 1.09GB comprised of just under 268,173,300 small files? Additionally, as IconDaemon mentioned briefly, FAT32 has a file size ...

That folder should contain ...

Using ls -f works for me. -f officially switches off any sorting, but it looks like then the original HFS sort shines through, which is exactly a case-insensitive sort. I guess, it actually depends on whether you have your HD formated case-sensitive or not, but as case-INsensitive HFS format is the default for Mac OS X system disks, this should work ...
