Jude, I am in awe. Until you typed that I hadn't stopped and though
about how difficult it would be to install a brand new operating
system from scratch with out any sight.

Learning and installing Debian for me (while learning linux at the
same time), was a very sight intensive task. reading logs, reading
dmesg, reading the output of commands trying many permeations on
things to get them to work. etc. Installing from scratch until you
have your reading programs installed and working from my point of view
must be a mammoth task.

What do you do if you can't get audio to work or a package doesn't
install correctly or the machine doesn't boot. I'd imagine that
whatever program you use can't read post/bios messages?

I'd like to hear more of your experiences if you'd like to ramble, If
you don't, I'll go and sit in the corner again.

<erno> hm. I've lost a machine.. literally _lost_. it responds to
ping, it works completely, I just can't figure out where in my
apartment it is.
