Thanks for the warning, Boyd.  But this is for an assessment question in a 
course I am doing, not for a machine in use.  The questions centre on X and 
Etch, and given how much methods of dealing with X have changed between Etch 
and Squeeze, I thought that it might be nice to do at least some of it on 
the "right" version.

Then I got pig-headed when I was failing.  I can be quite stubborn about not 
giving up.

Using the DVDs would presumably also work.

Thanks all of you for all the help.
