Patience is a virtue in almost any life experience. With Linux this is
even more true. Debian is no different from other Linux distribution with
respect to it's complexity. It is different from many in that it provides
mechanisms for dealing with this complexity.
Long distance debugging is not a trivial task, but it can be done. Later
postings are at least a demonstration of this effect.
Kendrik was correct to come to the list with his problem. We have pealed
it appart and discovered what caused the problem, and it will be fixed on
the next set of boot disks. This is the way it works.
