    I agree that there should be one installer for newbies and another one for experts. I myself being a newbie to Debian – I have used RPM based linuxes before – had a hard time trying to install Debian. Please understand that I am not critisising the Debian Installer – it was just that it was too much for my idiotic brain to understand – and almost gave up on Debian till I got a copy of Stormix 2.06. What a difference it makes to a newbie. What I am trying to say is that if Debian could have a GUI based installation and GUI based configuration and at the same time have the traditional installer for people who want it – just like what Suse has done, then I am willing to bet that many many many more people will adopt Debian.

    Cheers,

    Michael
