That's about all I know about programming, heh heh.
I am trying to install Debian on Shuttle XPC (Shuttle I, I think). I have faced several problems, and every time I try to reinstall it, problems seem to go even worse. I am slowly getting frustrated after trying like 20 installs in two weeks or so. So, if you can tell me about next things, or help me where to look at. I have read some of Debian 3.1 GNU/Linux Bible, but it's like hebrew to me, and doesn't tell too much about following problems I am having:
Oh, what I want is a computer to use (VoIP/surfing/email/MP3/dvd-burner/movies) kind of multimedia desktop with least extra confusing elements.
1. Which kernel to choose? 386 or 686, and which version of those?
2. Debian or Ubuntu for newbie like me?
I had 1st 3 CD's of Debian sarge, and got GNOME up and running, but after I connected to web and reinstalled there (tried to fix totally wrong screen resolutions by reinstalling), and then trying to install Kubuntu, I have only had problems and I've been unable to start any GUIs. Xserver or something is not working. Seems every time I try something else, I seem to break new things. Can you help me little here? Please!
Thanks in advance!
