Install Lenny Base system (No Desktop).

Add to sources.list lenny backports

aptitude - Fluxbox , iceweasel , hardinfo , xserver-xorg-core xorg , pcmanfm , xterm , scite , gdebi

xarchiver , gsetroot , ksnapshot , gimp , nfs-user-server , nfs-common

deb files download and gdebi , wbar , google.chrome

pcmanfm - needed .gtkrc-2.0

-- install - tango-icon-theme

-- setup .gtkrc-2.0

setup conky , wbar

add fluxbox-theme Nuevat3k-Glacier



- flashplayer , download from adobe , extracted , copy to /usr/lib/iceweasel/plugins

# non-free flashplayer didn't work for me , from lenny backports

Problems are

-- have to refresh on boot to see background

iceweasel , google.chrome

-- seem to have trouble using menu with mouse

other known problems.

-- menu in other programs dont like to stay open without mouse button down.
