Well, first off this is the *FIRST* post you have made to Debian User
under this name. Do you have any other aliases?

     1. What actual Linux distro are you using?
     2. When did you download it?
     3. What machine are you using? What make/model/motherboard... etc
     4. When have you asked for help on #debian on irc.debian.org?

Please get those answers back to us.
