Keeping preferences and similar stuff (e.g. password files, bookmarks) in sync between two different Linux distributions (unison)

I use unison to keep my kwallet syncronized between SuSE Linux 9.3 and 10.0. Of course one can use the same /home partition for both distros, but this can cause trouble due to differences in the program versions. Thus I only share /home/user/Documents among the distros and have separate /home/user/.preference files, some of which I syncronize during shutdown.
This is the /home/user/.unison/shared_resources.prf file:

How to boot into the BIOS of a Dell Precision WorkStation 410MT to change to SCSI booting

Why do all hardware producers make up their own key combinations to access the BIOS? I never remember. This time it was an old DELL, that forced me to download the user manual: It is Ctrl+Alt+Enter. I needed to change the boot priority in the BIOS to enable scsi booting. Funnily grub confuses the disks and you manually have to specify the correct root(hd0,1) in the /boot/grub/menu.lst. Grub writes its guess of hard disk order to /boot/grub/, but the guess was wrong in my case.
