What are the best ways of making money?

Ok, i need money, becuase i want to even out my Karma(it's as bad as it gets), so i have to buy back the kids from the little camp before vault 87. So where are the places with good money making oppurtunites, good items ect... Who knows, maybe we could make some kind of guide out of this =P

    Get the bounty hunter perk or whatever it's called and go out and kill lots of raiders and cut off their fingers. You will get lots and lots of caps and positive karma. It made me a wasteland saint or something like that. ^^

    Go around and adventure the Wasteland, there are raider bases and everything where you can get supplies, to sell, or you can find Nuka Cola machines, and you can find just caps in corpses too.

    I was going to list all the possibly hand in's but unfortunaly I dont have the time and need to get to work !!

    Basically, for money do all the hand in's and constantly look out for those items, what I mean is :

    Save Scrap Metal and sell it to Walter in Megaton, its worth 10 caps per scrap metal.

    Save Nuka Cola Quantums for the quest, do NOT drink them !

    Blood packs can be given to the guy at "The Family".

    The list goes on, there are quite a few hand in's like this, all designed to give the player money.
    I know for sure that a gamespot forum thread is all about it and contains every possibly hand in, I just cant find it myself atm.

    Anyway gtg :S !!

    Set repairing as a tag skill, just after leaving Vault go to Springvale school, kill raiders, repair and sell their armor and get money. Then do it with supermutant weapons and then with Enclave guys. Simply take Guy who finds many ammo (don't know this word in english :|) perk and sell it. Take Lawyer perk, or if you don't care about Karma go and shoot everybody in Big town, Megaton and Rivet city. Eat people instead of buying stimpaks. Eat mirelurks and human flesh (30 hp, 9 rad). Steal clean water, kill animals. Lol "baddy's" way is always easier.

    Best way I've found to make money is from trading. That's why I would recommend looking at the value of each item you find while wandering the Wastelands, and not ignore any item you come across. Stuff with low values only really works if you have a lot of it, sadly. :(

    The higher the value, the more caps you get for it. Sell it, then lo' and behold, you got a lot of caps. So loot off your enemies, get items you can get from wandering the Wasteland and sell them. That's the best way to me. :)
    MEEDIIIIIC!!!

    I have a way for you to get lots of money fast, but it requires a good set of knees and a strong ability to suppress your gag reflex.
