Old netinst images generally do not work, since the packages they depend on may be replaced at point releases. If you really want Debian 5.0 ('lenny') then you should use the netinst image for the latest point release, 5.0.9. If you have no particular reason to favour Debian 5.0 then I would recommend the current stable release, Debian 6.0 - more specifically the point release, Debian 6.0.3. > Are there any mirrors from which I could install this OS?
