You know, people are always saying this (about the installer being
difficut), but when I set up my first debian installation (potato), I
didn't have any difficulty at all.
Of course, setting up some stuff (like X) was harder than it is now, but
the installer was great. I think it's just really a question of reading
the docs first, then thinking and planning.
