    I was thinking of TurboLinux, but couldn't find much info about it in
English.  It's based on RH, right?  What I like so far about Debian is there
is lots of info like updates/patches/security stuff in English.  But I
haven't found anything like that for TurboLinux.  Is there any?

    Thanks for the info.  I hope it's not too hard to get Debian up and
running with Japanese support.
