    I rebooted - now what?


    After I installed Debian, it said that I had to reboot. Then it said remove all floppies from their drives, and remove all CD's from the CD-ROM drives.
    But then it said that you can boot from your installation media.

    What should I do? If I boot and hold down shift, an enigmatic window that says "MBR 2FA" shows up. If I boot from the disk, it starts from the beginning of the installer! Help!

    Are you sure you have installed base system within the setup?

    It said that I'm running the minimum stuff required for Debian.

    It can't recognize my CD Drive, and it can't recognize the Internet. I have DSL - how am I supposed to use PPP!?

    It recognized the CD Drive for the installation. I got the CDs pre-burnt. What should I do?

    It says something about a /dev/cdrom, but it can't recognize that!

    This is soooo annoying....
