Ah-ha! I darn sure did comma separate my nameservers, and a quick
glance at my /etc/resolv.conf shows me why it's not working! Heh heh.. I assume
that the commas not parsing OR the install telling you to do them that way is
on its way to being fixed...
As I write this, I am connected to a Debian mirror site and getting all
my packages! *cheer* This is very cool. :)
Thanks to _everyone_ who wrote in with help and ideas about what might
be causing the troubles! Leave it to me to start installing a new OS exactly
when the support list decides to go down. Do I have perfect timing or what :)
I was told that this list was VERY good for help and questions, and
that is true. People offered to mail me the 1.1 disks and everything :) Turns
out a comma was the culprit -- go figure!
Everything seems ok now, so this thread will retire and I'll start a new
one with my next question :) Thanks again to all!
