Michael, this is fantastic!!!!!

I did install on a partition and i do have a few technical questions.

This may not be exactly the list to discuss them on, so please tell
me where.

Just for reference, my two technical problems are:

It does not apparently see how to use my network hardware
(i have a dell inspiron 560).

Second is that /etc/apt/sources.list is empty except for a comment,
so i don't know what repositories to use.

I can probably fix the second one if i get the list of repositories by booting
from another partition and mounting and fixing the one i installed on.
But the first one would require some kind of code patch, and maybe
i have to reinstall more intelligently, or somehow regenerate the
iso itself --- i'm not entirely clear from your message.

In any event, thanks very much for putting this and Sisyphus
(what a name!!!) together, and thanks for any info on how to address
these problems or what mailing list i should use.

This is something i've wanted for a long, long time.
