Dubian installation Boot disk question

Hi guys I have heard a lot of good this about Dubian and decided I want to give it a try. I need to know what boot disk I need to create in order to do a FTP install. I have d a laptop with a Linksys External PCMCIA card. Would someone give me a list of the images I need to download and create to do this type of install?

I suggest you download and burn the bf2.4 netinstall image to CD. It's about 20MB and it's way easier to use than failure-prone floppies. You can get it here:

If you want the floppies, read the installation docs and download the floppy images from your local Debian mirror site.
