Newbie Choice Of bt-cd, iso-cd, jigdo-cd, list-cd, Which Should I Use?


I have the choice in a Debian mirror to download bt or iso or jigdo or list -cd for my first install of Debian 4.0 Linux.

I want to install to HD by CD, which is the one to burn to CD?

And the mirror isn't clear, there is 4.0 r0 and 4.0 r3. Which is the latest and stable?

4.0 r3 is the latest. Basically, it's just got the latest security updates that have occured since the 4.0 release.

If you have broadband access, just download the netinstall.iso file. It'll grab virtually everything from the web. bt is probably a bittorrent feed and jigdo is another download type.

Thanks, netinstall, I'll burn that to CD and download it to the HD. It does not need unzipping does it? That will be just one CD?

Just one CD. When you burn the *.iso image to CD, make sure you "Burn Disc from Image" with your burning software. If you just make a data CD, it won't boot.

FWIW, the mirrors (HTTP or FTP), BitTorrent and Jigdo are different ways you can obtain the ISO images. It's up to you which you use.
