Re: Which Debian Installer for Etch, please?
Actually, I noticed that I downloaded the latest version July
12, 2005. Hope that's OK.
I tried to access the packages.debian.org site but got a
wrong page. Perhaps the servers are busy.
What I meant to ask about the packages was: are some
programs not available as yet as debian packages?
P. S. I am still downloading the Sarge stable release. It's
taking a long time. I have an ADSL connection. Will decide
after it's download what to do.
