Re: Problems installing wheezy

Finally able to boot my machine with my new debian distro! Thanks a lot! I am gonna stay here forever!

Some post-installation questions,

1) The desktop seems to be unusable, no icons on the desktop and I cannot right click onto it. Or it normal? Is there a setting to unlock the desktop? or is something wrong with the installation?

2) Now I have downloaded the dvd-iso-1 and installed debain, I will be downloading the other too dvds too this week. If I am not connected to the Internet and I have these isos will I be able to install other packages using them? Else I will skip downloading them.

Thanks again! Feels great!
