Trivia

Locke mentions that he worked as a collections supervisor for a box company. In episode 1.18, Numbers, that featured Hurley, we learn that his accountant has purchased controlling interest in a box company for Hurley's portfolio. Hurley is therefore Locke's boss.
After this episode aired, ABC announced that "Lost" had been picked up for the full season.
This episode reiterates a lot of scenes from the pilot, featuring the mayhem immediately after the crash. These are not the original scenes but were all actually economically recreated for this episode.
Jack Bender tried to keep blue and green out of the flashbacks to contrast with the beachside scenes.
This episode's original title was "Lord of the Files", a reference to the revelation that John Locke was nothing more than an office drone.
Right after Locke gets off the phone in his office, his boss reminds him that he needs the "TPS reports", a possible reference to Office Space (1999) further showing that Locke is a merely a simple office worker.
During the flashback scene (approx 9:40 mark) after Randy indicates he wants the TPS reports by NOON, Locke begins punching the electronic paper calculator as Randy walks away. The resulting "ticka-ticka" sound is the same sound the Smoke Monster makes throughout the series.
This episode's original title "Lord of the Files" was rejected as it was ultimately decided that it was too glib.

No real boars were involved in the making of this episode (even though it's all about hunting some down).

Spoilers 

The trivia items below may give away important plot points.

While Locke's paralysis, and subsequent cure, have become a central element of the show, they were introduced relatively late in production. As late as the second episode, when Locke tells Walt "I have a secret" the writers did not know what that secret was.
In this episode we learn that John Locke was actually wheelchair bound prior to the crash.
