Yes, if I remember correctly.  However, that was April(?).  Actually, I would like to see the documentation for installing and the actual install process tightened up a bit for those of us who are newer to Linux and would rather be doing other things than installing software.  Next time I install Debian, I will try to document more the loopholes, tarpits, and monsters I find.  I am just setting up a network and then I will finally have internet access for this computer.  Any other questions?

>I got my potato version working, however it sure was a headache.  My main problem was that I was trying to put my root Debian on an extended partition.  It kept failing at "Making the boot disk".  Once I changed my plan to putting the root partition on a primary partition, I didn't have that problem.  I know about the lilo and 1024 cylinder limit but I have never had problems with that before.  Anyways, I don't have an extra system to try it again on.  Sorry.  I have really appreciated Debian system after install, although I don't use it a lot right now.  And Debian's documentation, bug-tracking, and mailing-list methods have made me a big fan.
