Thanks. Would that have caused the failure I had?

Another, general question.

Are the kinds of problems I am experiencing with installing Debian/Linux 
common, or am I just lucky?!

(Dare I mention it?) I installed netBSD a couple of weeks ago and got it 
right on the 2nd try. Of course, I didn't install anything but the base 
setup; no X or anything else of significance. I decided to install 
Debian/Linux instead because of the wider base and larger community. 
Besides, the Penguin is cuter <grin>.

Are there any other Linux/Unix options for a 68K Mac besides Debian and 
netBSD? If so, how do they stack up against eachother?
