    correct, by changing /etc/apt/sources.list and doing apt-get dist-upgrade

    O.K, I think I understand. I'll start up the installer - a lot of the things seem automated anyway...

    For example, finding the apt source, and configuring the network.

    I'm in the middle of the installer, and stuck fast .

    My network card is an Integrated 10/100 Base-T Fast Ethernet Interface.

    I'm at the part where it asks what drivers I want to install - I don't see mine on the network card list! What should I do?

    Here are the ones it gives as options:
    Name of card Name of driver
    3Com 3c501 3c501
    3Com 3c503 (EtherLink II)
    3Com 3c503/16 (EtherLink II/16) 3c503
    3Com 3c505 (EtherLink Plus) 3c505
    3Com 3c507 (EtherLink16) 3c507
    3Com 3c509 (EtherLink III)
    3Com 3c529 (EtherLink III) 3c509
    3Com 3c515 (EtherLink XL) 3c515
    3Com 3c523 (EtherLink/MC) 3c523
    3Com 3c527 (EtherLink/MC32) 3c527
    3Com 3c590 (EtherLink III)
    3Com 3c592 (EtherLink III)
    3Com 3c595 (Fast EtherLink)
    3Com 3c597 (Fast EtherLink)
    3Com 3c900 (EtherLink XL)
    3Com 3c905 (Fast EtherLink XL) 3c59x
    Intel EtherExpress Pro/10
    Intel EtherExpress Pro/10+ (ISA) eepro
    Intel EtherExpress Pro 10/100 eepro100
    Intel EtherExpress 16 eexpress

    try going back to Configure Device Driver Modules and see if there is "network device". If not, you should be able to skip it and fix it after the install

    I gave up on the network card - it's never going to work.

    But now it can't recognize my CD drive, so I'm running a MINIMUM Linux system. What can I do?

    It can't detect the network card, nor can it detect the CD-ROM, so I'm stuck. I use DSL, so I don't think I can do the PPP thing.

    do you have to tell it where the cdrom drive is? (I haven't installed woody for like 9 months so I have forgotten)

    Yes, I think so.

    I have the minimum installed, so how do I reconfigure the CD-ROM drive? Do I have to reinstall or something?
