hello lee, thanks for your reply
does ubuntu use executable installers like windows?
i mean, to install a package, can you double-click the package and it 
will automatically begin to install?
i'm a little intimidated at the thought of installing from the command 
also, if i see debian comes with a package i want, can i install ubuntu 
then install individual packages off the debian install discs?
i know years ago i installed mandrake on a pc and at the end it asked 
me if i had any more discs to search for packages
does or can ubuntu do this?
