    Kudos to you on creating a really helpful topic for lots of people.

    ...but that gentoo icon looks a little jagged :| . Could you please change it to some better one? I am attaching one if you don't want to go through the trouble of searching for it :)

    you mean, the oldest living GNU/linux distribution didn't come to your mind?? thats scary. Sure this due to the low media hype that has surrounded slacky ever since.

    Nice topic by the way. Ill tell mehul if i find any interesting links.

    Nothing like that. It just skipped my brain since I haven't used it since a long time. But, it will always remain as 'The Distro' that made me move towards Linux.

    Sure riyaz I will add the links from that thread, which I have missed out so far.
    @prakash and anybody else, if you'll have a few links on some how-to's for Debian please give them out.
