Right now I'm a little bit pissed off about Debian. I installed the
'Standard System utilities' by the net install CD. Booted into tty1,
logged in as root and tried to run pppoeconf, but it isn't installed. No
DHCP here, I'm the last dino!
Rebooted Ubuntu to download pppoeconf + dependencies, resp. to read the
web if there's another way to set up PPPoE and seemingly my xorg.conf
that worked until now is ignored, wrong screen resolution and
stroboscope frequenciy @ 59.8Hz vertically. Perhaps an GRUB issue? Even
if I couldn't see something in the strange grub.cfg regarding to his
trouble, anyway there're tons of grotesque entries.
I don't expect that after installing a new Linux, that my old installs
are 'broken', I guess they aren't really broken ;).
I call this the "iMicrosoft effect", I neither have any iThingy nor any
Microsoft stuff, but Linux distributions keeps me abreast of the times,
by emulating annoying, time-robbing problems :(. I take it with grim
sense of humor ;).

I'll stay at debian/debianoid.
Before I'll send this message, I'll edit Debian's grub.cfg and
Aha, after editing grub.cfg the way I edited it for Ubuntu, the screen
resolution is ok and the frequency is @ 89.9Hz. Perhaps it was broken by
random, perhaps caused by a bad grub.cfg. Anyway, at least the "submenu"
is ignored and there's a different behaviour regarding to splash
screens. I like to see messages.
Time to ask at firstname.lastname@example.org how to go on after
installing a standard system without X.
