Etch was Debian 4.0 basically. They are currently supporting Debian 9 and 10, maybe 8 still (not sure). Stretch / Buster are currently supported. You won't get anywhere with Etch, nor should you risk it being so old and so far out of support and security updates.

Move to old stable Stretch, or current Buster.

This should save you some time searching.

And? I'm doing the Linux museum on VMware and Virtualbox, And I need a desktop environment for that. I also download and install Debian stretch and buster in museum. I'm talking about etch, not those two! I know it is old, but for the museum it needs the graphic environment.

And no need to be snarky: mgibson1981 was trying to be helpful. You explained nothing about a "museum" in your first post.

As long as it's not production you should be ok. You should specify why you need it in first post because anyone will automatically assume you don't know what you are doing. I meant no offense.

The netinstall ISO file just contains the minimal amount of software to get the computer running and then grabs the rest over the internet. Since the Etch repositories are no longer the installer will fail if I understand the problem.

You can download the jidgo image file for the full DVD and convert it back to an ISO file per the instructions. I think that should work.

I'm sorry, I use windows, but I'm trying to use jigdo on windows and gave this error: 0 [main] sh 1368 sync_with_child: child 8052(0x1CC) died before initialization with status code 0xC0000142
123 [main] sh 1368 sync_with_child: *** child state waiting for longjmp

I've never used jigdo so I am not much help as to why it does not work. You could try it from a live version or a temp install in a virtualbox of a real distribution and copy the results back to Windows. It is not complicated but if you are not all that familiar with linux might be daunting.
