Two problems #1) I live in the Philippines. Because of this downloading software takes many hours. I downloaded Debian Squeez and was very disappointed. Besides taking 2 days to get I haven't been able to find any software that is ready to run. I am not a programmer but I want to get away from the world domination of Microsoft Windows. I downloaded a list from Sourceforge that was supposed to contain all programs that are available for Debian but I can't even open that. !?!. I am very frustrated. What am I doing wrong???
Problem #2) When I loaded and installed Debian from a USB drive I was never asked if I want a dual boot. Now I have no access to Windows programs.As much as I hate windows I am stuck with them. I tried to reinstall from the USB to see if I missed something but apparently when the Debian was installed at the same time it removed essential files from the USB and I am not able to reload the Install. I tried Windows disk but after installing again it still boots to Debian only. WHAT DID I DO WRONG???
