I just wanted to let y'all know that another mere mortal has joined the ranks of Debian users. I just installed Sarge (2.6 kernel) this evening, and all I have to say is WOW! I've tried my hand at Mandrake and RedHat before, with my latest distro being the buggy and bloated Fedora Core 2.

Here is what I have learned in the past three hours:
apt-get is the most amazing tool ever.
icewm is so much nicer (faster) than kde.
(ok i could've used icewm on another distro, but redhat tries to be so newbie friendly that it scares you away)
apt-get rocks.
i don't have 9 million programs sitting around that i'll never use!
everything seems so clean and simple.
apt-get is incredible.

Anyway, the two stickies at the top of this forum were very helpful and the install went without a hitch. Thanks.

Next stop: Install ATI Radeon drivers *shudder*
I'm sure I'll be posting again soon asking for help on that one. I have yet
to get it to work under any linux distro.
