I, too, have been considering installing Sarge on my laptop. I'm on a dialup
connection, so netinstall isn't practical.
An easier solution than juggling CDs is to get it on DVDs. Those in North
America might check out http://www.budgetlinuxcds.com. Unfortunately, their
DVDs were updated back in 11-21-04. You can register with them to be notified
when it's updated again.
For those in Australia, try https://shop.linuxit.com.au. They update weekly,
but only ship within Australia and its territories.
There are probably other vendors around the world who offer DVDs. Try
Googling. That's how I stumbled across these.
