Re: mini instalation
The rescue.bin and root.bin only provide a bootable temporary file
system for the debian setup program, but contain no kernel
drivers/modules or actual system files for a base installation of
debian. For this reason you will require:
1) The driver disk(s); I would recommenced that you create driver disks
1-4 if you are not sure what drivers you need exactly. But technically
you can get away with using just 1 driver disk depending on your
2) You may also need the base system disk images as well. They contain
the programs needed for a completely basic debian OS. However, whether
or not you need these depends on if you are going to be using a net
connection to install a base system. If you have a working network
connection with supported network hardware, you can select http/ftp
during the installation and the setup program will pull all the required
base system files down from a debian mirror. If you do not have a
network connection you *will* need the base system disk images to
install a basic system.
The debian installation is not as scary as it may seem. You will see
once you begin, that it is fairly self-explanatory. Just remember that
you *need* a 'base' system and 'drivers/modules' to have a working
debian operating system.
