Install Debian question


Hi all folks,

1)
I am going to install Debian with Disk-1 and Disk-7 on a 6G hard drive
for test purpose. They were burnt from following Official CD images of
the "stable" releases from Debian mirror sites;

debian-30r1-i386-binary-1.iso
debian-30r1-i386-binary-7.iso

I have not downloaded other ISO CD images. Can I install a stardard
Debian-Linux workstation only from these 2 CDs

2)
Has any folk tried install Debian from "Anaconda for Debian"? Does it
install Debian from Internet? If YES would it take lengthy to complete
compiling from source code similar to Gentoo?

Kindly advise. Thanks in advance.

B.R.

You can install debian just fine off the first CD; that one contains many of the "core" packages (binutils, gcc, etc) that is associated with linux. The rest is easily downlaodable with apt-get.

Hi,

Before posting I tried to download

From :
http://www.debian.org/CD/netinst/

LordSutch.com ISOLINUX mini-ISO image -> woody-i386-1.iso / woody-src-1.iso

The link seemed died
