'The Very Verbose Debian 3.0 Install Guide'

I went through these install instructions successfully over the weekend. Now have a VERY basic system running.

The above article is the best guide on how to install Debian.

Just one addendum, if you install with just CD#1, and want kernel 2.4, you have to write:


at the boot prompt on the first (boot screen) and do a net install for the kernel. OR:

Insert CD#5 and after the partitioning, insert CD#1 when you are told so, for the base system etc.
