how can I install Debian from the mounted CD-Rom image.


I am trying to install debian woody on my laptop

I have already booted from a usb floppy drive and mounted the first installation CD.

now I want to install woody in the installer from the mounted cdrom image but I can't.there is an error message says the installation program couldn't find any directory containing the files rescue.bin,bf2.4/drivers.tgz.

1.) Did the installer start?
2.) Did you type in: setup?
3.) Did the errors come after mount?
4.) If so, is the CD burned correctly and is a stable woody version?

yes I downloaded the kernel image and base system onto my harddrive partition.and installed them under the debian installer.

then I reboot the system and was led to the apt-get step.I changed to console 2 and mounted the .iso image into /cdrom directory.and installed woody from there.

thank you.
