Yup, seeing as how Brad asked. Same as, I either use the Debian netinst for 
office machines or the old, but still effective DeMuDi installer for music 
machines. Either way it's a one-time install and I end up with a workable 
Debian system. Apt-get really does make upgrading a piece of the proverbial 
in most cases. I only ever compile stuff out of choice.

This is why we put up with all the other crap involved with Debian. ;)
