That wasn't me! Im Ben Humpert and not rhelas rhelas. Please send us the email of rhelas rhelas so we all can add him to blacklist. Thanks
And the reason why im not answered to all the responses till now is that im still have various problems with installing etch on my 860 but the problems doesnt belong to debian itself, looks more like a routing/hardware problem of the server. I just want to finish the installation OR want to wait until i get a debian error so i dont have to write more than one mail. more than one would be useless.
