Yes, I have found out exactly the same things after lurking
around for a while. Thanx a lot for your help and advice.
Especially for pointing me to Joey Hess's archive, and
suggesting to forget my Debian-2.0 and the CD-ROM in favor
of an installation from the web. I have now a very neat
running Debian system. And it performs pretty well.
A couple of things, though, are still to be found out, like
* ppp with my combined modem/ethernet PC card
* check the CDROM
* get netscape to run (4.07 does not)
* choose a wm/desktop
* get some work done ;-)
