Re: looking at debian
Debian and accessibility work really well in the console, but not as
well as Vinux in the GUI. I believe you can go to cdimage.debian.org to
get the version you want. If you have wifi then I suggest the net
install version, about 300 MB. Use the DD command to copy the iso to a
thumb drive if possible since it is faster than a CD. When booting, you
will hear a loud beep sound which tells you the menu is on the screen.
Press the S key and then the return key. Within a few seconds the text
installation program will start and will guide you through the
installation. I have Debian 7 console and Vinux 5 dual booting on a
netbook. The only time I use Vinux on the netbook is if I have to run a
GUI program, otherwise I love the Debian console. It's quick and
responsive. As great as Vinux is it tends to overpower my netbook.
