Done and working just fine ... thanks !!!.
I installed just the base system with nothing else and
then I upgraded all the base system to woody plus
Now I want to install X on the iBook ... Do i need a
newer Kernel ? ... is 2.2.17 just fine for this ? ...
What is the best way to install X ? ... any Doc ?.
I already have a clean woody base system working fine
and I just want to add the X, I have been reading how
to install from getting the source and compiling but I
think the Debian way should be better ... and easier.
Thanks in advance for any advices or guidelines ...
