So... just for the heck of it I typed "startx" and lo-and-behold, it worked. I'm actually typing this to you from Konqueror (FF hasn't finished dl'ing yet).

Okay... next to get the appropriate drivers for my 8800- I still have that PM you sent me I believe so I'll try that.

As to debian... isn't it for more "advanced" linux users though?
Redeemed,
Use this if you're still stuck with getting the driver to work. I used this when I first installed Kubuntu.
