Re: LINUX Install

  I'll skip the beginning of the post, partly because I can't even parse a
number of your sentences, and partly because I'm short on time and want
to stick to factual questions which are easy to answer.

  There are a number of good Web browsers available: "potato" included
Netscape, and the soon-to-be released "woody" version includes many fine
web browsers, including galeon, konqueror, and Mozilla.
  There are several good NNTP clients in Debian; I like knode and gnus.

  As far as GUIs go, you should probably use the KDE environment (see
http://www.kde.org); "woody" will include this.  Other environments
would include Gnome and WindowMaker.
