Wow, thanks everyone for all your responses. I'll try to get to all the
issues raised on one email.
DSL is already set up here-- I have a Windows machine on it now. I have
a Netgear DSL modem/router. So I don't have to deal with the activation
issues lots of Linux users have. I have the ethernet plugged in for now,
and am trying to configure it rather than wireless for now.
Your messages have given me the encouragement that I can figure this
out, even though I've already spent more than a day researching it with
Google and all kinds of other resources.
I don't have a lot of flexibility about which distribution to use. I am
blind and need to use screen-reading software (Speakup,
http://linux-speakup.org/projects.html), and need a distribution with it
integrated into the kernel. I also need a recent distribution because I
need a recent version of ALSA to deal with the intel onboard/integrated
soundcard on my motherboard. So I'm using GRML to install Debian (and
then will have to update ALSA in Debian).
Thanks so much for all the time you took in your responses.
