Re: [vox-tech] Debian download - 8 disks?

Quoting andy wergedal (awerg@yahoo.com):

> Is there a step-by-step howto do this?

Download http://www.debian.or.kr/~alee/cdimages/woody.iso (177MB) .  Burn it.
Boot it.  Take the defaults right through Simple Package Selection.
In program that offers that, pick package groups you want.  Pick Finish.
Pick "No" on entering "dselect".  Otherwise, keep taking defaults.
Login as root when it's done.

Add some of these lines to /etc/apt/sources.list , for stuff you want:

## Official sources for Testing branch:
deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian testing main contrib non-free
deb http://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US testing/non-US main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org stable/updates main contrib non-free

## Unofficial sources (may come and go, may issue dodgy packages):
# KDE 3.1 beta
deb http://people.debian.org/~schoepf/kde3/woody/ ./
# KOffice 3.0, other KDE3

Save changes.
Type "apt-get update".
Launch "aptitude", use it to pick other packages you want.

Start using Debian.

Why, what ethernet chipset is it?
