Could I impose upon someone to dumb-down/break down steps 2 and 4 a bit more 
for me?  I envision myself mid process and facing just a command line with no 
bootable GUI, and this is my stopping point, I think.  Again, currently using 
lilo, but how to make sure the conf is accessible during the process, 
editable, etc.  To me, these things are still rather nebulous.

Otherwise, my fears are much allayed, but I need to have everything *really* 
spelled out before I jump in.  Sorry.
