I tried this deb, but it gave "gzip: unexpected end of file" when installing. :-(  Oh, but
this was reading the deb from an hfs partition, downloaded by Netscape/MacOS, I wonder if
that had something to do with it?  I'll try downloading using lynx in Debian.

A couple of other questions (sorry for the barrage!): how do I get buttons 2 and 3 on a
1-button ADB mouse?  left/right option-click and option-2/3 (both from LinuxPPC) don't
work, even with "Buttons 1" in the XFree86Config Pointer section, and I can't paste with

And has anyone had trouble with fetchmail lately?  I just updated everything yesterday,
including exim, and fetchmail hasn't worked since.

Thanks for the newbie help, I'll be sure to help out the next newbie!
