I think you're setting yourself a bad precedent if you give up on a
problem and reinstall. In my expreience you learn the most from fixing
things rather than working around them. Dont get me wrong, I installed,
broke, and then reinstalled linux many times back in the day, but its
not something I find myself doing now. At worst, I boot from knoppix and
chroot myself into a borked install, there's very little cant be fixed
Anyways, once he gets it fixed he can install bittorrent, download
simpsons from suprnova and watch it at his leisure ;)
