The bug is that after I installed Squeeze, the Tex distribution totally died. And after I ran "upgrade-from-grub-legacy", the graphical interface and greeter no long work.
I think some of the documentation was unclear and left ambiguous instructions , which I probably guessed at and misinterpreted, although I googled for help for quite a while before.
I might just wipe my disk and install Ubuntu, which everyone at my job has already switched to, especially because I need this computer for work, and it hasn't worked with wireless or dual monitor.
I have a computer science and math degree, and also a couple years of computer science at Berkeley. I'm 50 years old, and I very much doubt any older person could do this, without extensive background.
Very poorly done! Documentation and software is just a mess, sorry to say.
After about 12 hours of working on this, what a waste of a day, and if things continue, probably for the rest of the weekend.
