Re: [solved]going to attempt a minimal install of deian squeeze then #! it

i do have a question. when installing debian do i allow it to install grub or not? with other dual boot linux situations ive read that you do not let the new install write grub and then what you do is boot into your original nix install and run update-grub so that the new install is shown in the grub menu on startup. would this be correct for my situation?

Install grub, you can always edit it later.

Re: [solved]going to attempt a minimal install of deian squeeze then #! it

ok so my my next and hopefully last question regarding this...
afetr adding 

deb http://packages.crunchbanglinux.org/statler/ statler main

to my repo list then

apt-get update
apt-get install crunchbang-multi-session

this will add everything to turn debian squeeze into crunchbang or are there other steps that i need to take?

Just in case you guys want some goodies of the newer Statler images, change the repos to crunchbang.org.
