Of course not, and I think nobody said. Yet, it is fair to assume that a
newbie is using gnome. On the other hand, newbies google too and might
have heard about sudo, KDE, postfix, mysql, lighthttpd and any other
non-debian-default application that I currently cannot think of.

Anyway, somebody starting a topic with "help" as subject certainly
should read http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html ;)
