I’ve been waiting SO LONG to get this. Boreas finally arrived on Friday, and I couldn’t be happier.
Resizing the Windows partition went pretty smoothly, and I’ve installed the amd64 port of Debian on the rest of the drive. It installed GRUB by default, so I decided to try grub out rather than install LILO.
I’m still trying to get X and the wireless card working. But I’ve found some stuff on line that makes me think it won’t be too too painful.
