After doing a nice clean install of potato last night, I now have to come to grips with the 'Debian way of doing things' - like setting up a sound card and a nic, etc. So is there some tool like the one in the install that let you choose what modules load with the kernel. It was 12am and I just wanted to get the basics up and running.
I did get a few packages groaning at install time too, but running dselect then checking for unconfigured packages didn't find anything.
My other prob is whatever window manager I run, the cursor is a large block of junk, about a cm square of random black and white pixels. Anyone got any tips on this?
The debian newbie guide 'task-debian-newbie' is ok for Linux beginners, but is there something (web based, whatever) which is more a guide to the 'Debian way of things'?
many thanks all
