OK, I might. Might also get a CD drive to work
and proceed with 5.0.2. I've become quite wary of
testing systems after experiencing many headaches
with Debian Squeeze testing.

I'll send a message when the system is running or
sooner if necessary.
Thanks for answering my questions.

Carnot is down, waiting for installation of NetBSD.
