[L.P.H. van Belle] Yes, correct.

[L.P.H. van Belle] Yes, correct also.

[L.P.H. van Belle] It should not change the settings. 
Only the default editor, i removed that part, only the needed things are checked. 
In the future, i'll change the different scripts to 1 script.

[L.P.H. van Belle] tekst changed, explained a bit better there. 
In the 0-setup-apt-debian-4 i added jessie and sernet support.

[L.P.H. van Belle] Yes, thats correct, but wait... i've added it also.
But I did not test it yet. 
The 0-setup-apt-debian-4 has now the option for Jessie to add sernet support. 
If that is done, you can enable in the 4-jessie-dc script also sernet samba. 

But again, i've not tested it yet, i to buzzy atm at work :-(
