Yeah, okay, I did what you suggest 'cept not the 'business card', but
the regular netinstall (about 127Mb). Everything went perfect, no
probs with the iso image burn, checksum, or the actual netinstall
itself. I'm writing this from the Deb environment.

So I guess I'm using etch for awhile.

Also appreciate Ben's suggestion not to give up so easy on the ubuntu,
but I hadn't read that until after I actually went ahead with the etch

Thanks for the help, everyone. I guess I'm back in the game again,
basically back at square-noob-one.
