Care to elaborate on your desktop problems? I wouldn't recommend
exposing Sarge to the Internet. You shouldn't need to reinstall. That is
the beauty of Debian; install once and then just upgrade ... upgrade
... ad infinitum[1]

[1] Well OK, *eventually* the hardware will be too old but by then you'd
start noticing other problems.

I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god
than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other
possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.
