Hmm, yes, looking back, it does seem rather insane that I asked those 
questions.  However, you may be able to answer them by using a bootable CD 
such as Knoppix.

On the other hand, if your system is fresh off an install, you may want to 
try again with the just released pre RC2 version.  It's very unusual for 
your system to end up in this state fresh off an install.

You indicated that you will try with a slightly older install CD.  If that 
worked before, it should work again, and the beauty of Debian is that you 
can easily upgrade your system from now until the hardware dies without 
ever having to reinstall.

Good luck, and if you still have problems, post some specifics in a new 
thread and we'll try to help.
