Right-o,

Been tackling this Linux beast for some days now, and I have settled on Debian.

I don't have sound and I don't have internet, but I have Linux. It's a start.

This whole thing began as some sort of immersion therapy attempt to learn C. Got myself a K&R, a Debian Distro and have just downloaded Emacs with my *cough* Vista box.
