Not that brave


The above is me downloading a "desktop environment" (as in X-Windows) for Debian Linux, which is in progress as I'm writing this. I did not opt to put one on because I was getting impatient for the network install to complete.

I'm able to SSH into the Debian box, but then I realized something: I don't know anything about how to get around a bash prompt in Debian. In SuSE I can more or less do anything but Debian is a different animal, so... I need some graphical environment help to get me going. Kinda sad, but hey, I've never used Debian so I'm allowed. 🙂
