    Thanks, for the links! That will sure help me get everything set up. I think I'm just going to give each a try. I have the time, and I don't want to feel like I'm missing out on something.

    That's the way I am. I like to experiment with all of it. It's become somewhat of a hobby, and a fun one at that!

    Tip: It's wise to make notes on whatever steps you take, as you go. This saves time if you have to start over, or if months down the road you want to reinstall from scratch.

    Hope you enjoy your installation experiment...

    Yeah, right. Best way if you enjoy unnecessary work.

    haha, Well, that's always nice, but I tried to install just Gnome and KDE on two seperate installs, and I was not able to get my mouse configured...I tried for awhile, but I had no luck, so I just continued with a normal install and I'll work out the details later.

    But, I am writing this post from Debian!

    Sure, it is always better to install a massive set of packages that you don't want, and never plan on using, just to get the thrill of removing them at a later date. I'm sure this idea will catch on as more and more people realize how it rapidly it wastes their time.

    What's easy about removing KDE with Synaptic?
    What is your method? How exactly would you do it?
