What I've Learned:
How to Setup X-Windows on Debian 3.1r0a Linux Running on a Sony Vaio PCV-R536DS Desktop Computer


The only real problems were: (1) figuring out how to specify which sub-systems should be installed, and (2) getting the mouse properly configured for X-windows.

Important: I am using a vanilla system. I have a CRT display and the mouse that came with the computer (a so-called PS/2 mouse -- not a USB mouse). The mouse has two buttons and a wheel. It is plugged into the mouse port on the back of the computer.
