I have DSL, and I have looked into doing a net install
but am kind of unclear as to how that would actually
work.  i've downloaded a minimal-cd (image) from
http://www.phy.olemiss.edu/debian-cd/ ...so when I
boot up with that cd does it just automatically 
detect my connection and download the rest of what
it needs from there?  I want to make sure that I 
don't have to be a linux guru to pull it off (not
quite there yet; still a newbie) and don't hose up
my machine in the process.

any tips you guys have are greatly appreciated.

p.s. I really do want to *buy* the cds to support
the movement... I am just totally strapped for cash
right now so next time I think I'll just buy 2
copies.  =D
