Which version of Debian are you using? Is it Woody (3.0) or Potato (2.2)

the installer or through 'xf86config' or 'xf86cfg' on the commandline?
Please give lots and lots of details. It helps anyone who decides to

I hav just now finished installing debian. everthing seems OK. but my X
didnt worked properly and machine got hanged ( I hav sis6326 display
with 4MB Video RAM and black-n-white monitor)
after this i hardbooted the machine and on boot up it started checking
filesystem, but file system checkup was veri veri slow (compared to ext2
FS check in Redhat) do i need to tune to get fast ?
secondly i have compiled kernel 2.4.20 this box , it is booting properly
but there is a difference in the orignal kernel (default installed
2.2.20) booting, in 2.2.20 i get a nice penguin displayed on top-left of
monitor but this does not appears when i use kernel 2.4.20

You should use 'ext3' if you find that the ext2 checks are slow. You
would have done this while installing the machine. Also I don't think
there is a difference in the ext2 checks on a Debian machine or a Redhat
machine, the time difference is probably because you messed up more
stuff when you rebooted (incidentally when you had Debian installed).
It would be a good idea not to compare things between different
distributions with Debian unless you *really* know that its
Debian-specific (in which case file a bug!). This sort of thing will
result you getting flamed instead of getting help! : )
