Good. >They are not supported by the "Debian installer kernel". >They have to be installed *seperately*. This is neither true, nor desired. Any module meeting the kernel ABI is supported by the kernel. Debian currently also distributes non-free firmware, which could be considered part of the driver, that can be loaded by the "Debian installer kernel" even if they are not part of the Debian OS and do not receive the same level of support. The proprietary video drivers for NVidia cards are supported by the Debian kernel and distributed by Debian, but they are not part of the Debian OS nor do they receive the same level of (human) support. -- Boyd Stephen Smith Jr. ,= ,-_-. =. email@example.com ((_/)o o(\_)) ICQ: 514984 YM/AIM: DaTwinkDaddy `-'(. .)`-' http://iguanasuicide.net/ \_/
