Well... I finally got my Debian installed with X running (thanks to
you). I still have no network running, but I don't want to reinstall
if I can avoid it. How do I get this up and running? I can't apt-get
from the net (off course), so I have to get whatever I need from my
CD. What do I do? Can I run some sort of installer, that can help me?
