Understanding the directory structure


Hi,

I tried to download a debian installer from my nearest mirror and I chanced upon this site http://mirror.averse.net/debian/

However, there are so many directories under each directory. Is there anywhere where I can learn what does each directory provide?

Where is the debian installer images usually located at?

Lastly, I am planning to use netinstall to when I read that it does not support wlan card. Any idea why?

Thanks.

you are probably looking at a mirror that provides the packages, not iso images!

No wonder thank you.

btw, have you came across anyone who managed to setup his wlan card to do a netinstall?

yes :-) but i dont know which card it was... would have to be something that does not require ndiswrapper (i.e. intel 2200?)
