setting the time from the gnome clock, and service settings -

not important, merely interesting

right - just checking, as for me, it makes no difference, but to someone
running grml-x for the first time, and not knowing what to do, it may be
a confusing.

Right - I think your method is better for now, as the hardware
detection, if wrong, would render scd0 useless, whereas having scd0 as
hdc, then realising one cannot impement dma will lead to someone
figuring out fairly quickly to boot with the correct parameter, since
this issue is discussed a lot.

no such file!!!

- interesting to note that my orginal cheat, grml-setlang to us english
utf8 set the /etc/defaults/locale to new york time zone - 1.0 has the
time zone commented out, so I just edited it by hand - I presume you did
this because utf8 is now the default encoding...  again, it took me
thirty seconds to correct the issue, but a note in the wiki to make sure
that the time zone is set appropriately in the default locale file is
now in order, as it is not the first place people tend to look, since,
even if the TZ is correct in the /etc files, if the default locale is
not correct, the read of the bios clock will not be.  (Thank you,
Microsoft for making this so complicated ;) )

I do agree that the reason I use the grml isntaller is to avoid the
lugubrious lethargy of the debian installer, so, yet again, your
decision is correct to avoid more questions, but this issue for someone
unfamiliar needs just that one sentence clarification at the wiki page
you noted.

At the moment, all is well with grml.
