Yeah, I've tried almost EVERY kernel.  I've been thinking about trying
Debian lately, but Will Smith tried it and told me that it's not for me
(cause I'm a lazy asshole.)  I kinda like the .rpm files, but as much as
Mandrake pisses me off with all of it's "I'm gonna do this for you, and
not tell you how I did it" bullcrap, I'm willing to switch.  Then on the
other hand, Will was telling me you have to set up EVERYTHING by hand in
Debian, and I'm not up for that (cause I'm a lazy asshole.)  I dunno,
maybe I should switch, maybe not.  Maybe one of you Debian fans can
persuade me?
