I am contacting you because Iím looking for someone to provide paid support
to me in the use of Debian.
First of all some context. I do a lot of work as a programmer on my own
equipment (mostly perl, html, sql db's). It is in this capacity that I want
to move from windows to linux. I think this will be a major step forward for me,
based on my experience working as a programmer on other peoplesí linux and
Regarding the immediate help I need, it is for someone to walk me through the
debian install via telephone. I have gotten the cd's, but my two attempts to
install them have failed: while using the graphical interface to configure my
terminal, the system crashed, and I canít get my cable connection to work. (And
I am sure that beyond these two hurdles still others await me.) I could probably
dink around and manage on my own, but I would rather pay for help and save my
time. After the initial install, I will need occasional help dealing with the
inevitable 'out of nowhere' problems, as well as putting on new hardware and
software. For most of this later support, I expect email contact will be

will provide a significant number of leads to people who want to switch to linux
but who need support similar to what I have just described in order to do
I prefer to be contacted via email with a brief description of the
interested personís work with debian.
