I thought make xconfig only looked a bit better. I have made the partitions for extra distributions and gentoo will be the first I try after I have everything in debian completely configured as I want. In fact I'd already have gentoo if I wasn't such a newbie when I chose the distribution. LOL I didn't know that I could use I386 on my PC and searched for I686 which I couldn't find very easy so I picked up my downloaded debian CD again.
I've fixed the error. Might be an error in my own memory, since I thought I always had ignored the gcc check failure. So I went into 'delete everything till it works' mode just ago and deleted cpp and reinstalled that in version 2.95 and it worked. I think deleting gcc would be better since there are no dependencies which have to be deleted as well. Deleting old kernel files in /boot and deleting all files in /boot and then installing the kernel on the clean /boot didn't work either BTW
