compiling 'make' w/o 'make' (?)

Now that I am trying to install Debian from a CD, I found that the
network  card was not supported,  I read that some dude had found a
driver for the NIC in a MSI-M662 laptot, I myself don't know what kind
of NIC is in this machine, I am going by what the dude claims.
However, after downloading the alleged driver, I had to compile it,
for that I need to have 'make', but this machine does not have the
make program, after downloading it from the GNU' FTP site, I found out
that I also have to build this program using 'make'.
As you can see I am in a vicious circle, can anyone help me get out of
it.

TIA

Install the C development tools for whatever distribution you're 
currently running.

GNU make comes with a shell script to compile it, for exactly this
reason.  If you'd read the README file you'd have seen this.

Also, since this is Debian, you should be able to get a precompiled
package of make.  Try running "apt-get install make" or "apt-get
install gmake".

I don't think he has network working, so he prolly cant make apt-get work?

apt-get will also fetch from the installation CD, which probably has
make on it.

Oh, I thought maybe the build essentials were not on the cd.

'is not' or '!='
A newbie question to you; what is the difference between statements like: if x is not None: and if x != None: Without any context, which one should be preferred? IMHO, the latter is more readable.

"x is y" tells you whether x and y actually refer to the same object. In the case of singletons like None (there's only one None object), it's better to use "is".

Does '!=' equivelent to 'is not'
I'm a bit confusing about whether "is not" equivelent to "!=" if a != b: ... if a is not b: ...

No, they are not the same thing. == and != test to see if the *value* of two variables are the same. Like so: >>> a = 'hello world' >>> b = 'hello world' >>> a == b True a and b both have the value of 'hello world', so they are equal is and is not, however, do not test for value equivalence, they test for object identity. In other words, they test to see if the object the two variables reference are the same object in memory, like so: >>> a is b False a and b are assigned to two different objects that happen to have the same value, but nevertheless there are two separate 'hello world' objects in memory, and therefore you cannot say that a *is* b Now look at this: >>> c = d = 'hello world' >>> c == d True >>> c is d True In this case, they are again the same value, but now the is test also shows that they are the same *object* as well, because...

'[OFF]' as in 'offensive'???
Hi, given that 'off-topicness' is indicated as '[OT]' and taking a look at those postings that started the threads indicated as '[OFF]' (which may both be seen as being somewhat offensive) may lead to the conclusion that '[OFF]' stands for offensiveness. I don't think that this is the intended meaning so what actually *does* '[OFF]' mean?

ports
I tried to install wireshark yesterday as an upgrade to ethereal. This will sound daft - but the ports system seems unable to 'make' certain targets. The install (via portupgrade) seemed to start with a 'make clean' - which promptly failed ("don't know how to make clean"). I forced it through by running 'make install' manually in the relevant directory. I had to repeat this procedure for a couple of dependencies - and now it's finished with "make: don't know how to make package-depends-list. Stop" Any ideas what may be adrift here please? All was well for the last port installation (I forget what/when that was). (Oh yes, I did cvsup the ports tree first, fwiw) -- Please use the corrected version of the address below for replies.

replacing '/' with '\\'

In other words, if I could force myself to write, say, \begin{group} \it ... \end{group} instead of {\it ... }, then I believe I could identify from the markup context what is an argument that belongs to a just invoked macro and what is text. {Of course, in this context, \textit{...} would be better.} No more ambiguity whether a in \myfunction{a} i...
