Fresh debian-etch install


Hi guys,

I have Dell Inspiron 6000 with ipw2200 wlan chip.


I have internet access from a wireless accesspoint but not direct internet access.

My questions are.

1. Is it possible for me to use netinstall cd ? I mean if the kernel with it will be able to detect my wlan and access it ?

2. I have 56Mbit/sec speeed, is it really recommended for net install at all ?

3. If netinstall is not possible where should I get the current Etch cds ?

After install I will also require getting my hardware work with Etch, e.g. card reader, firewire and others.




Thanks,
Hardik

Hi there

1. The ipw2200 chipset will work with Debian (the driver is built into the kernel) but you need to install the firmware once you're up and running so it won't work during the installation.

2. Only do a net install if you have a broadband connection

3. Current Etch CDs are available from here:

Hi,

the above link you gave me does not contain the full disk. The images is only 50% when I download it.


I downloaded following image,

Debian GNU/Linux testing "Etch" - Official Snapshot i386 CD Binary-1 20061225-05:02 CD


should this work for installing ?

regards,
Hardik

If you're installing on a PC, here is the direct link:
http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/we...-i386-CD-1.iso

Please download it with a program that will allow you to resume downloads.
