  When you get a chance try installing Debian stable (aka woody)...
if it gives you too much trouble, at least skim through the installation

    (you will have to select your platform and perferred language)

  Also keep in mind you should try Debian again when the next stable
release comes out... there is a much smoother install system that has
been in the works for years now, but it didn't make the cut last time
stable was released, it may be done next time.
