Actually, I installed woody 2 days ago without any problem. Not sure
what the difference was from the last 2 times...maybe I'm just a little
more experienced now. I was inspired to install it after hearing you and
Bill talk about it for 3 days at GTC. Plus I got to feeling guilty that
my wife's computer was still running Windows. 

So any pointers to docs on where to go from here? I poked around
debian.org, but didn't find what I was looking for. For instance, if I
wanted to go from stable to testing or unstable, what is the procedure? 

Now if I could just get Linux on the IBM Workpad, we'd be a MS free
house finally. ;)
