Subject: boot-floppies: Documentation index contains bad URLs

Version: N/A; reported 2002-03-12
The main documentation index main/disks-*/current/doc/index.html has bad
link to the "Release Notes" (it currently links to
dists/testing/main/upgrade-i386/ which does not exist).
As of now the "Release Notes" seem to be solely residing at
* Please *do* copy them into the documentation section so they can be
included with the install mediums (there *are* "testing" CDs beeing
burned on a quite large scale everywhere) so that people that do only
upgrade through CDs etc. do have some infos on them on how to go about
* Please change the title "Release Notes" in the main index to
Upgrade Information and Release Notes.
I do have reports of people completely breaking their system (PCMCIA
was deinstalled, DHCP was deinstalled, leaving them without a means
to download the requiredpackages or without a means to go back) so
actually I wanted to report this bug as critical.
There were rumours on -devel that one absolutely needs to update apt
*first* before doing anything else when doing an upgrade from potato.
If this is critical then it absolutely needs to be properly documented
and the user *must* come accross that piece of information if he reads
the docu which AFAIK is not the case now.
* So please document that fact in:
In particular, if apt *does* need to be upgraded, then "3.3.1 Upgrading
from Pre-Potato Releases or Using CD-ROMs" is completely missleading
as one should (as far as I've heard from the rumours) *allways first

I'm closing these bugs because install-doc was the documentation for the
boot-floppies, which have reached end of life.
Current installation documentation is in the debian-installer-manual
package. If you think that your documentation issue is still not
adequately covered in the sarge installer manual, please reopen your bug
report and reassign it to debian-installer-manual.
