Here's about right.

Are you sure you have the sid netinstall iso?

- mini and netboot just boot from CD and do everything over the net.

- monolithic is like netboot but has all modules preinstalled.

- netinstall installs a full Debian base system from CD

There isn't a good reason for those names.

The netinstall iso is old (kernel 2.6.8) and known to work. The
netboot isos are known to panic, hopefully fixed tonight.

Don't use softraid bios if you use only Linux. Use Linuxs own software
raid support.

Netinst never downloads prior to the reboot into the real system. So
you must have a netboot iso.
