Comments/Problems:
I am new to Debian, but hope to switch permenantly from Redhat/Fedora once Sarge goes stable.

I took basically every default, and stopped at the package selection screen that listed taskel, etc...
I went to McDonalds and came back about 30 minutes later.  There was a strange error written over the taskel option.
I think it might have had something to do with power management kicking in or something.
Anyway, it only caused cosmetic problems with the menu, everything else seemed to work fine.
Except once I selected taskel and then selected a Desktop installation... packages were downloaded, but then it said
that all of the selected packages couldn't be installed.  I selected taskel again, and then desktop install again.
Then everything seemed to go through without error.

Once GDM started up, I logged into KDE.  Then I got the following error:
---------------------------
Sound server informational message:
Error while initializing the sound driver:
device /dev/dsp can't be opened (Permission denied)
The sound server will continue, using the null output device.
---------------------------

I think it goes without saying that sound doesn't work.
