Well, I'm pleased to report that I finally succeeded with my first
Linux installation. I was installing Debian 2.1+ from the OReilly CD
and was having some trouble installing the base system (though
everything else seemed to install just fine). I appreciate the helpful
comments from those who gave advice regarding the problem, but
unfortunately it turned out to be a hardware problem!
I swapped out my CD ROM drive for my housemate's CD ROM drive and tried
again with that. It worked, to my amazement, and I was soon thereafter
set up with my Debian system.
More newbie questions to come from me in the near future... (oh, I
know you're excited too)
