What I scetched above was a procedure to get into the installed system (wheter or not the installation was finished). I assume the installer finished the first stage (since quik was installed, and the system sounds like it boots correctly). Start the installation again. When the installer has detected the hardware, get a shell, mount the partition where debian is installed and chroot into it. Did you run base-config during the first stage? If not, do that in the chroot, so password is set for root. > The goal is power the machine and never more power off, remove > keyboard and mouse and use ssh/webmin to manage everything . Well then you might not even have to resolve the display issue, just install ssh in the chroot and reboot. -- Hans Ekbrand (http://sociologi.cjb.net) <email@example.com> Q.
