First let me say that you have not even cared to look into
Debian thoroughly.  I was using your RHL for 4 long years,
before I gave up and went on to use Debian GNU/Linux.  It is
Debian and not debain.  Network Computing has given you all
a cut-down version of Debian  which is liable to be broken.
The Debian Official release is a 3 CD set of approx. 4000 odd

The Debian GNU/Linux setup is easy to use.  I can help you
off-list with this. Do feel free to mail me.  The Debian  
setup tool called as 'apt-get' is one of the most clued tools 
around to do an incremental update via the network/your
favourite media, with built-in dependency check/fetch unlike
the Redhat Package Manager.

I volunteer to spend time with you to setup Debian, after which
the base setup can be done under 3 minutes and a full XFree 
install can take 7 long minutes ;-)

Will you please mail me off-list ?
