Debian has all but one or two of the Perl modules available in the main
distribution. It would be nice if those and Koha itself were available
from apt-getable sources.

apt-get and a Debian package that just works are what makes Emilda's
installation easy. Speaking of zebra, assuming i have my library
working with Emilda, how hard would it be to extract everything in my
local Zebra server and pump it in as a Koha biblio?

Did you know? It is illegal to use your copy of Microsoft Office on
multiple computers without multiple licenses. Why not try the free
alternative OpenOffice.org? <http://www.openoffice.org>
