That is one small step for <> man one giant leap into debian

The time has come. I have started to install Debian Linux on my old laptop.

I have gotten this iso file and expanded it to a CD which I have moved to the laptop.

From what I have read so far from the installation guide, the next thing for me to do is to boot off of the CD drive.

The only thing I am wondering right now is this. Since this is an installation using just once CD (I double checked the readme file, and it is), does this mean that I am required to be on the internet when I install this version of Debian?

No. That should get you up and running with xfce, but you'll probably want an internet connection soon to install specific programs not included on CD1
