[vox] New laptop. Woo hoo!

We'll see how happy I am after I get Debian installed (currently running 
mke2fs -c to test the new hard drive).  Ordered from DFS direct for
a little under $700, I've got a warranty until the end of the year, and
they majorly screwed up on a few things:

1. They gave me a 38G hard drive.  I ordered a 6G.  Guess I'll just have
   to put my MP3 collection on it.

2. It has an extra PCMCIA card I didn't request...a global-use modem 
   that I believe is Linux compatible.  Pretty good, because I purchased
   this laptop for eventual overseas use.

3. Wrong power cord.

Since I work at an office that uses Dell laptops, I've got a spare power
cord (I'll call and have them send me mine, though).

Assuming this thing functions properly, I am quite happy.
