[ #16577 ]

Well, after a really weird first attempt, everything seems to be progressing smoothly.

The first install ended up putting everything in root (i.e., rather than /dev/hda7 for /usr, everything went into /dev/hda3). The only thing I can figure out is that at some point I umounted everything other than root. Beats me, but it took forever to find out what was going on.

Once I got that all straightened out, it began complaining of errors on /dev/hda3, and wouldn't boot. When e2fsck couldn't repair it, I immediately suspected a bad hard drive. I did a quick Debian install, and verified that the drive was good. Dunno. Something really weird.

So, I trashed the entire thing and started over. This morning, I configured the kernel and booted it successfully. Then after a little googling, X fired up on the first attempt. I had mis-defined my mouse, but that was all.

I transfered my .enlightenment, .fluxbox and .emelfm directories over. Enlightenment fired up beautifully.

So far, so good. Now if I could just win that lottery and get this thing paid off.
