Hello everybody!

I just wanted to let you know that at 16:20 CEST, I logged in as normal user
on my successfully installed Debian Linux 3.0.22 (woody) system.
It is still very basic: I now need to orient myself in the package jungle 
and get a GUI (GNOME?) as fast as possible.

To sum my experience:

Removing thr Oktagon SCSI controller physically was essential to get the 
installation to work.
The rest stayed in:

A2000 rev. 6.2, 1MB Chip RAM, ECS
internal AMIGA floppy drive (DF0:)
Blizzard 2060/50MHz with onboard SCSI controller (MAPROM feature enabled)
64MB Fast RAM
DEInterlace internal (video slot) flicker fixer
Picasso-II with 2MB onboard RAM (in linear mode)
Multiface-III interface card
Catweasel S-Class Zorro-II IDE/Floppy Controller
Samsung 20 GB IDE HD
MrooCheck mouse adapter

In separate box:
- *Connected to B2060 onboard SCSI:*
* Pioneer SCSI CD-ROM DR-124X
* Seagate 2.1GB SCSI HD
* Syquest 3105S SCSI removable media

PC HD floppy drive *connected to Catweasel*

Not all the above hardware is recognized by Linux due to missing/not yet
installed drivers.

A question:

Can I use packages from my potato CD-ROM disks with the woody distribution?

Thank You for all the help---I am  sure that I will be back soon with more
