After such an answer I thing Felix will never come back and try free
software. Not that your answer was not correct, it was. But he complains
about things not working automatically and the only answer we can give
him is "take your brain and your fingers and fill a bug report".
Is debian (and other projects) becoming like the octopus-like
administration ? "Got a problem, fill the yellow report", "To fill this
report you need to fill the 1456B first" ...

I think this is the last reason why the desktop-winwows-try-crash-
reboot-retry people won't want to install linux. However I don't know
how to address this.
