    I'm working on it Dman. Have read 2 Debian Install Manuals, 3X each,
dselect, cfdsk, bootprompt HOWTO,
basic book on Unix, modem HOWTO, Josh's Linux Guide, and have started on
Rute Users' .....Not to mention following 2 newsgroups and spending
hours on the Net.......
    But all these materials assume much more knowledge than they think.
My old Brother word processor (read:: text editor in Linux) hadn't
broken down in November  2001, and I just ordered a Gateway  the nest
day for MS Word. I do a lot of writing and couldn't even spare the time
to shop around. *Then* I got mesmerized by these incredible tools and
learned about Linux a month after that. There are grade-school kids who
can do more with my computer than I can.
     But I'm studying hard, and  it's starting to make real sense. Will
get up the courage to install one of these days. There's someone that
will babysit over the phone while I run through LILO config, cfdsk, and
dbootstrap and dselect/dpkg, but I have to feel comfortable with the
process first, in my mind. Will be sending XPernicious to cyberhell and
installing a rudimentary console-only setup at first, with comm apps,
text editor, and necessary utilities.
    I have become dependent on e-mail for business, and the Install must
work the first time/day.
