That's what i use on Debian. You can also install Google Chrome, Opera, 
etc... basically whatever browser you want. Despite not being a KDE 
user, i even use Konqueror sometimes if i just want to test a page 
(Konqueror loads really fast). I suppose you could even install IE with 
a bit of work.

Did you do a network install? And if so, do you have a fast internet 
connection and did you choose a relatively local mirror?

I actually have good luck with the Ubuntu and Gentoo forums. My Google 
searches often end up finding things in one of those 2 places, and 
usually the info applies just fine to Debian. Debian has its own forums 
and wiki, but they are (in my limited experience) less useful.
