Re: Problem booting off CD

Did you use "burn image" from the "file" menu in Nero?
Sorry for asking silly questions, but booting off a debian CD normally works. As an alternative you may want to start installing from floppy disks. You just need the rescue-floppy for booting and the root disk. For the packages, you may then use your CD or install from the net.

Woody is the current stable distro, but you may not find it to be a "current" distribution. In debian no new versions of packages enter the stable distribution no more; since woody was released a while ago, the packages aren't among the youngest no more. You may want to try "testing" or "unstable", which are more up to date.
