As to your other problem, can you tell if you have an internet connection? Try something like ping If not, you might need to do an ifup eth0 type command to bring up the network interface.

Or if you just want to reinstall, you might just download the special XFCE/LXDE install CD from here.
Ive re-installed the system using the special XFCE/LXDE CD you suggest, however, still no joy. Please follow my thread at
