Here is the "weekly" ISO site for "sarge" Debian > http://cdimage.debian.org/pub/weekly/

You only really need CD #1 for the first link as the rest are different 'companion' types of the first CD.

This is the site for the "net install version" ISO of "sarge" Debian > http://cdimage.debian.org/pub/cdimag...ing/sarge_d-i/

For different ways of getting Debian isos see this page: http://www.debian.org/distrib/cd Here you can choose between jigdo, BitTorrent or ftp/http. Each section has link to the stable and testing (Sarge currently) versions.
If you insist on not using the net-installer, you may download the whole 14 Sarge CDs here: http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/ Don't let yourself fooled by the title ("Installing Debian with the Debian-Installer). The 3rd row of options below this title are the links to the full CD sets (which eventually leads to the link the previous poster offered to you).
And indeed, you can download only the first CD as it contains the base system and most of the day to day programs a regular user uses. This means if you need something else, not included on the 1st CD, you'll still have to use ftp or http to get the required packages or the other CDs.
So, I'd recommend you to use instead the net-installer as it wouldn't make a difference from the 1st full CD if would you need something else than what's included on it. Just in case you're interested, I also have a poor Internet connection (25-30 kb/s aveage download rate) , but I managed to install Debian using the net-installer in around 3 1/2 hours.
Or, there is also the solution of buying the CDs. Here is the list for your country: http://www.debian.org/CD/vendors/#in

Pick the one that suites you best and good luck!

Of course, there's always the possibility of upgrading from stable to testing. You may want to take a look here: http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/re...-woody.en.html (it's written back when Potato was the stable branch, but it's still a valid howto).

Hi!
Thanks for the fast response!
I'm using jigdo 0.71.
And again, isn't there a way to find out how much of the iso has been written?

Hi,

I tried to find a sarge version, but on almost every mirror I can only find woody ....

Is there something I miss ?

I can find Sarge there :

http://cdimage.debian.org/pub/weekly/ia64/

But which is it ? Stable, testing ?

While it says Sarge, it is the testing branch. At the moment, Woody=stable, Sarge=testing, Sid=unstable. When Sarge will be released as stable, its "replacement", the future testing will be called "Etch". For more information about the naming conventions in Debian, see http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/re...n.html#s-dists and http://www.debian.org/doc/FAQ/ch-ftp...ceforcodenames Also, you may take a look at http://www.debian.org/CD/faq/#which-cd to see what's all the fuss about the Debian CDs.
