Re: is the Creative Labs AWE64 GOLD Soundcard supported?

Ok, congrats for you nice keyboard. I heard a PSR-don'tRememberWhichNow
years ago and the sounds were nice. Don't get slave to gadgets though! 
get Mark E. Boling, "The jazz theory workbook", Advance Music... other
books if you want, one especially good for pianists. If you learn jazz you
can face anything. 

Back to Debian now.

As soon as you can, I suppose you have better learn _with_ it.

Yes, no Debian packages almost on 1.3.1., will give a look at the ftp site
but think not. (This won't interest you, anyway I saw a couple of hours
ago that at Takashi Iwai's home page there is also stuff for Doom with
Linux, sound server and patches to use awe synth with it... A Debian
package of doom should put all that stuff together.)
