Likely causes of not being able to ssh in to the box as user or root?
Putty comes up and asks for username and then password, but gets no
further. I can ssh to localhost from the box as both. Hmm. /var/log/secure
doesn't seem to be there so I'm not sure what log file to look in for
clues. I probably should read up on the debian way.

Also can someone tel me what happended to ll? I tend to like ll as oposed
to ls -al. I suppose I have to create or enable the script that does that.
I think I figgured out the /etc/init.d/service start|stop|restart thing. I
bet the service script is pretty easy to write, but that might be a no no.
