With LN you can use adminmenu, apt-get, synpatic; what ever you use with 
the Debian distro.
Adminmenu acts as a graphic system admin tool, the frontend to configure 
kernel, install packages, config X-windows, sound, network,, printers, 
time, users, desktop, browser plugins.

Adminmenu does not have to be used, just makes things easier for the non 
hard           core linux user, like me. :)  Also the installer blows 
the doors off Debian's netinstaller. I used that last night to install
