How can I browse the internet?


Hello, I know this is probably a stupid question, but I am now using Debian Sarge on a new system without a graphical shell (not using GNome, etc.) Is there any way to browse the internet without installing GNome or something similar?

Thanks in advance...

(sorry, just realized that I should have posted to the newbie forum. Please move the topic if needed.)

There are text browsers you can use, like Lynx (or Links). You may have one of these installed already (try the "lynx" and "links" commands), or you may need to install them, but I guess this is easily done with apt-get.

you might have problem browsing sites that rely heavily on frames.

You need to have an X server running to run graphical programs..
