For now it seems to be working. During partitioning, I was told that
.5gb is too small for a automatic partioning, so I did it
manually. When writing the filesystem it just stopped at about 50%,
but I could log in using a different xterm. After more than an hour, I
rebooted and it got over that. I'm not sure if I'm expecting too much,
but if feels extremely slow. When partitioning, I had to wait about a
minute from screen to screen. Last time I installed debian was a 2Ghz
desktop, so most probably it's just the contrast. But sure it's still
little time I'm working on it (finally I'm advancing a bit), so many
things still can happen.
