Debian Download Question.

Whenever I download a Debian ISO and mount is, I get pretty much the
same files as listed below for all the CDs NONUS1, CD2 and CD3.
When I boot it, it says rescue disk. I have labelled them properly so far.
But how can I say one from the other on my PC from listing their
contents ? Thanks.


bash-2.05b$ ls -l /mnt/cdrom

On each of the CD's there is a file titled README.html. That file tells you which CD it is.
