Ben. Thanks. I've seriously looked into the dual-boot approach and
concluded that I'm very likely to end up with two non-working OSs.  If I
had more experience or a pro like you for a neighbor, sure. But I'm
basically on my own and a true newbie.
            I'll just set the BIOS for standard VGA, no sound, no
winmodem (have external, controller-based one) and boot order-
CD-floppy-HD.  Put the boot partition on the first part of  the disk and
let Linux have its way with the MBR and format and partition table. Turn
off  PnP in LILO config, etc. I'm getting it, and  I *really* want to be
firmly in the Linux world. Looked into them all, and Debian is where the
action is, so here I am.
