Re: method for booting the talking network installation with non-free firmware from the hard drive using grub

Hi, What would I need to do after I made a copy of the initial ramdisk image gzip file and the kernel to /boot to run the talking version of the debian-installer as I don't have another partition to use to dd the iso file to?  Reading the debian installation manuals there are no directions on internally running portions of the installer like what I am trying to do with starting the GTK talking version of the installer.  Nick Gawronski

You can do that as well, yes.

or just place the iso file in /home
That part would make it much harder for the installer to find the iso
image. Putting it onto a partition is really much simpler.

I kind of wanted a non-distructive method for the iso image
I don't understand what would be "distructive" in just dd-ing the
CD to the partition?  That'd on the contrary make it completely
independent from the system, since on a separate partition.
