Comments/Problems: Had a problem when I tried to start the Gnome desktop using "startx" command. I later discovered that the PS/2 mouse was not recognized and I replaced it with a USB mouse, rebooted the system, signed-on and typed "startx". Everything is working fine now.
<Description of the install, in prose, and any thoughts, comments
and ideas you had during the initial install.>
I downloaded and burned CD's 1 through 15 from the Debian website. I loaded the 1st CD and read the "read me file" I do not know the Unix OS but the documentation was very helful.
I still do not know how to install any other programs or applications from the other CD discs. I've installed programs from the 1st CD using the "aptitude" command. It would be very helpful if there was some docmentation on installing other programs from additional CDs.
Install logs and other status info is available in /var/log/debian-installer/.

This is a known issue for Sarge which is documented in the Release Notes: http://www.debian.org/releases/stable/i386/release-notes/ch-information.en.html#s-x-mouse > I still do not know how to install any other programs or applications > from the other CD discs.

You need to "add" the other CDs to the list of known package sources using the command 'apt-cdrom add'. I'm closing your report as your installation was successful. Thank you for submitting it.
