Selecting And Burning Software ISO Packages, Then Installing?


Apart from different mirrors, how does a user select packages and burn them to disk, for installation?

Each package on a separate disk I understand.

Then during installation, I remove the CD1, and use CD2... to install packages?

You can go to Debian package list (choose a mirror close to your location on the page), search and download required packages with all needed dependencies, then burn it and identify your disk with "apt-cdrom" during install.
But if you are connected to the Internet it would me much easier to use a netinstall cd.
