Or use "mount -a" to mount all filesystems already specified in /etc/fstab.

To configure your locale settings, ie. for using another language, run
# dpkg-reconfigure locales

NOTE: Before using locales with charsets other than ASCII/latin1, please
consult the appropriate localisation Howto.

Better point to /usr/bin/editor, this is guaranteed.

NOTE: If you one or more multiple network cards and you rely on the working
network, you should enter the names of driver modules into the
/etc/modules file in the correct order (so if you have multiple NICs,
the right card gets the right interface name).

Note to Chris: don't forget the boot loader!
