Operation inxtaller completed with success, thank you Peter!

I was half expecting a conflict since I had already done a sudo apt-get
install for screen (and mocp) but all went flawlessly :-)
The locale files had me doubting; first I googled be_BE and found that is
Belarus and not Belgium :-)
I picked "en" plus all "nl_BE"-ones - I want Dutch for Belgium, but English
as system language since translations of pc-jargon are awkward sometimes.

The only thing that's not right is the keyboard.
The first install suggested Belgian-French, whereas I use Belgian-Dutch.
Most keys seem to work, except for many alt-gr's like the pipe eg.

Anyway, apart from the fact that the sun shines today, after a long period
of grey and cold... YOU made my day sir! :-)
