of everything
went as soon as I receive the software.

Quake works perfectly on Debian. There are Debian packages that will make
installing it easier. XQF makes it easy to browse QuakeWorld.

I use AbiWord for a lot of things, but it's far from complete, so I also
have StarOffice installed.

StarOffice has database software.

Gnumeric. I've never had to turn to its StarOffice equivalent. It also
understands more Excel files than StarOffice.

I'm guessing that this communicates with a Diamond Rio. freshmeat.net lists
quite a few apps for this.

I have a friend with an Abit motherboard with a celeron, and it works
great. I can personally vouch for the network card.
