Hi, "passwd" command exists quitly but "adduser" cmd does not recognized in
the path."df" cmd outputs like this:
    /dev/hda1 343Mb.tot - 299Mb.used - 13Mb.avail - 96%.capac - /mounted
Ok, it seems that EXT addon is not present, right? Strange it, because no
error messages harm me in the bootstrap sequence. Typing "setup -l" show up
the correct "configured" near EXT,X11,GCC labels.
And another, cmd "man -l" displays only 15 items "help-able", such as
ar,as,awk....and qb2c,yacc, is correct this?
In specific intervals (about 5 min) system beeps, why this?

passwd viene riconosciuta ma adduser no. Il com. "df" in output mi da un
output come sopra, manca quindi l'addon EXT? Nessun messaggio d'errore mi
appare all'avvio. Ho guardato vari log ma non ho scoperto niente...
Altre cose: ho notato di avere un "man" un po' limitato, e' corretto questo?
Ad intervalli di circa 5 min. si sente un beep, dove e' impostato questo?
PS: provero' oggi a scaricare ancora una volta tutti i pacchetti, poi ti
faro' sapere...
