obtaining debian dvd iso with mac os x


I would like to install linux on my powerbook. I have experimented a bit with linux (redhat) and programming (java) and want to put myself back into that sort of environment. Having done a little research I have decided to go with Debian. It would be ideal for me to have a dvd iso file I could use for the install. However jigdo, which does not seem to be available for os x, seems to be the only method. Any solutions?

Any last minute suggestions?

Thanks.

You'll have to install it using Fink.

thanks. i'm actually going with gentoo now (turned out to be the most convenient). i saved the link though and will most certainly consider fedora later.
