I am one of them, except for the fact GV doesn't work :[ I have had no
problems. The upgrade was easy, everything worked as it always did. And
I'm not a developer nor super-linux-savy. It's been less than a year since
I got my debian 1.3.1 CD.

Just an ignorant question, how often do new libcs come out? What's the
story with glibc (how is it different from libc6)? 

Also, do the hamm install disks work yet, or is it better when installing
from scratch to do a bo install and upgrade using the most excellent
autoupgrade script?
