Im using debian lenny on my desktop without eny problem.
I did installed debian in my notebook too.
but my wireless device in not working properly, not detected.
and also when i play a video file oe a movie it plays withou any problem until i change the screen size to full, it does not play on full screen smoothly, even though the driver is installed?
By video do you mean a flash video in your browser? Older versions of flash and iceweasel have problems, upgrade to the versions in the backports.org repo. Also you might want to Google your video card to get the best xorg.conf, there are various things you can do to tweak it.
but my video is not much good.
if i play a movie not only a one on youtube, any movie file, it will play well until i switched to full-screen mode.
if i switched to fullscreen mode, it does not play smoothly. may be i need to install a nonfree driver.
