Please don't make any assumptions. It's built in the MOBO, OK?

What's wrong with you? Don't you know that Debian is community driven?
The only reason you can lay back and relax is because of thousands of
people reporting bugs for you ahead of time. What sense does it make to
glorify your laziness and flame others who make your life easy? If you
are bored and has nothing better to do, do something constructive, OK?

Sorry, that was unkind. It was just the impression I felt at the time
after so long watching.

You don't bother to check what mobo supplies before you buy it? I'm
running AMD-64+AMD/ATI video because I hunted for a box that supplied
them. It wasn't easy finding it.

Re-read. Grml themselves *by design* expect you to know what you're
doing if you're going to run grml.

That said, their mailinglist is very helpful, even kind to non-experts
from what I've seen, and far more helpful wrt grml than d-u would be.

Say hi to Mika.
