I had to edit XF86Config-4 to get to my full screen resolution without which not much work could be done.  Not a big deal, but I was wondering why the full resolution could not be detected.

Sound does not work at all - still working on it.  The motherboard vendor provides an alsa driver for the sound "card" for download, which I will try next.  The instructions that come with it call for kernel re-compilation...

There are two printers attached, a NEC Silentwriter 95f via parallel port and a Canon BJC-3000 via USB.  I could get both of them to work on the debian machine, but I also wanted to use this machine as a print server for a bunch of connected Windows XP machines (which it is when booted under Windows XP).  However, this still does not work.
Hope this was helpful.
