hard not just for the newbie ! I advocate, as usual, a sentence
in install.txt asking the user to only install preselected packages on the
first run through dselect. This would clear up many complaints. Then
suggest installing X and running the Graphical-fe to dselect if the user
prefers an X interface. The other option is to continue using terminal
front end but again ask them not to do too much at once.
A working GUI couldn't hurt in any case (unless it's buggy and
trashes systems !) 15 days of testing isn't much.
