Fine, then there remains that console-tools thing. One has to manually 
reinstall both console-tools and console-data to get back to a working 
nls kb.

Sorry, i can't provide better info - was in the middle of a course. But 
4 out of 9 SUSE users switched to Debian immediately after installing 
and upgrading some boxen before there eyes via http and a fairly quick 
DSL line while YAST was still starting up ;-)
After talking about Debian now & than during the course, i was very 
pleased to be able to demonstrate a smooth install using potato boot 
'floppies' off the website and (hand editing sources.list) immediate 
upgrade to woody.
Although i used every opportunity to talk about Free Software and Open 
Source Community that installation was simply more impressing ... ;-)

Thanks to all, greetings, martin
