Um it makes it easier to see one's responses, if you add a blank line OR two
betweent the quoted material and your response. Just a note for reference. :)

Well, I can't say it detects EVERY sound card, but Libranet's installer is very
good at detecting hardware. That's typical on a "Desktop" Linux. Easier for the
non-nerds to install and use...

I ran Libranet for two years, (before moving to pure Debian), using apt-get and
Debian apt lists. One doesn't need to use the GUI tools -- I used it, because at
the time, the Debian Potato installer, didn't detect my current hardware

Trying to be happy is like trying to build a machine for which the only
specification is that it should run noiselessly.
