    Forgot to add that I am still tweaked that KUbuntu's TBird still can't do
reply-to-list (then again, Debian's broke a while back, too) and I was
surprised to see an install option which was intelligent enough to delete
/var, /usr, and so on but leave /home alone.  I put this install on a single
partition as a throw-away test for gaming.  Silly not to split it out but not
having /home overwritten was very nice.  :)
