comment Where are Time Machine local backups/snapshots stored?
Not sure if this works for El Captain anymore, I can't find anything at least. I cd'd into volumes and did a ls -a (which shows all files, so including the hidden ones, in a directory) which gave nothing, tried this in both recovery and normal boot mode. Did the same thing for the root volume.

comment Disk Utility: choose disk or volume?
No, your "Macintosh HD" volume won't be repaired if you click repair on the actual disk. In the Unix world, people usually have a lot of volumes, so everything is always quite specific in matters like this one.

comment Can I link two different kinds of Macs each using different OSes?
There is no 'G5 intel' Mac, do you mean the Mac Pro? Also note that G5s can't run OS X 10.6.

comment Safari does not remember my settings
That is weird. However, it does make sense, as the preferences are stored in that file, and that file doesn't exist on your computer. You can download an empty .plist file from dropbox.com/s/z1xb9lj0t7j3y9l/com.apple.Safari.plist , and place it in your ~/Library/Preferences folder.

Are you ok with installing a little third party utility to run an Apple script when a keyboard shortcut is pressed?

comment How to enable “Repair disk button”?
Try booting from the Recovery HD and see if the button is still disabled.
