New Sarge install
I am new to Linux
and have some questions about a new install of Sarge. I come from FreeBSD
so I do have some familiarity with Unix operating systems (Unix-like in the case
of Linux). I am currently downloading all the ISO's of the "testing"
branch via Jigsaw Download. I believe there is 14 disks in all. The
questions I have are:
The "testing" branch
should give me Sarge correct?
Does Sarge come with
the 2.4 kernel or 2.6? I couldn't get a definitive answer to this question
on the web.
If so, does the
distro provide a fairly painless upgrade path to 2.6, i.e. is there a 2.6
Are there any
"gotchas" with the install that I should be aware of? I am installing a
dual boot with FreeBSD on a Dell Latitude C600 laptop.
Why are there 14
disks in the Sarge distro and only 7 in the Woody distro? What are the
extra disks for?
I have been able to
find some very helpful information via Google with regards to Debian,
installation, packages, etc but the above questions are still lingering.
Your help is appreciated.
