Thankyou ngram for your detailed reply :-)
Sorry for responding late! i was away for sometime :-(
That mail was sent to the list i think before your suggestion.
what failed was the
dl2k module in woody 2.4 kernel
I have downloaded sarge today and am going to install it so I'll let
you know the details soon.
I happened to see something strange though!
on june 6th on the debian site it was written that Sarge would take
one more week to get released because of some critical bugs needing to
be fixed but today i find that the site mentions that Sarge was
released on june 6th itslef!!
any Idea what happened??
also I see the CD ISOs have te alphabet "a" appended to their name like "3.1r0a"
does it mean that it is the alpha release of "3.1r0" or something??
Thankyou so much once again for caring to help :-)
