What exactly do you want to know? You want to dual boot one Linux distro with another....

And what do you mean "there are no images around"? http://linuxiso.org/distro.php?distro=45 or http://www.gentoo.org/main/en/mirrors.xml took me 1 minute to find.

hello sir,

i dont want the sarge installer to overwrite the lilo master boot record generated with lilo from slackware, are there known options for the installer to prevent that, i dont like surprises like a non bootable system, and i dont want grub.

the images you mentioned are only the gentoo live installer cds, anyway i want sarge not gentoo

thx
y

When you are given theoption to install a bootloader, select the option which doesn't install one - you'll then have to manually configure your bootloader to include Debian.

The Gentoo images are that way by design, afaik, the whole thing appears to be done over the network and from sources.
