LOL, you 'advanced user' you. I did one partition instead of the 'split.

Code:
/dev/sda1       /               ext3    defaults,errors=remount-ro,noatime,nodiratime 0       1
/dev/sda9       /home           ext3    defaults,noatime,nodiratime        0       2
/dev/sda8       /tmp            ext3    defaults,noatime,nodiratime        0       2
/dev/sda5       /usr            ext3    defaults,noatime,nodiratime        0       2
/dev/sda6       /var            ext3    defaults,noatime,nodiratime        0       2
Basically, any ext3 partition add noatime,nodiratime. I've read that nodiratime is a subset of noatime but I also read the kernel.org discussion with Linus. I'll admin I didn't man it so I just went with the suggestion. I'm not pedantic so I'm find with a small amount of unnecessary repetition if that is the case.

Glad you're pleased, I really thing Debian fills the gap quite well. Ubuntu eased my transition from Win32 and prepared me for Debian. Debian is what I think Linux should be, however, without Ubuntu I don't see the transition being so painless.

Agreed. I finally feel I have something I can actually buckle down and learn to my hearts content. I picked up a copy of "The Linux Cookbook" by Carla Schroder, which covers alot of the basics for someone at my stage of the game.

Thanks for tossing that suggestion in a few posts back.

You might want to add to this with the following for the various multimedia apps that are not included in regular Debian or that has been built with reduced features due to restrictions on distribution plus I added the non-free onto the regular sources since you have it on the backports..

Code:
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ stable main contrib non-free

deb http://security.debian.org/ stable/updates main contrib non-free

#Backports
deb http://www.backports.org/debian etch-backports main contrib non-free

## Various Multimedia Helper Apps Mplayer, Real, w32codecs, etc.. ##
deb http://debian-multimedia.org stable main

Don't forget to use a local mirror of Debian repository -- some of them also serve in IPv6. There also exists a tool called netselect-apt that can be used to find the fastest repository.

As for basic binary repositories of my choice,
Code:
deb http://ftp.fi.debian.org/debian/ sid main non-free contrib
deb http://ftp.fi.debian.org/debian/ experimental main non-free contrib

No, I don't agree with your comment about experimental & sid ;-) .
It's as worser than Ubuntu! A "single" aptitude update && aptitude dist-upgrade can ****** the system in no time...

Is there a place that I can get the newest KDE?

Pretty sure this is right for unstable DD. "unstable" is generally anything but that, it's the last testing repository before going into stable.

Edit your sources list then an apt-get update, should show the latest KDE.

Experimental is next. I've had a good deal of pain from there. fwiw, I'm pretty much running pure 'unstable' now, 0 problems atm.
