Welcome to Debian GNU/Linux! We're glad for your interest, but the
debian-boot list is devoted to development of the Debian-Installer
software, and not user support. In case you still need it, the
documentation for installing the current (lenny) release of Debian is at
[1] below.

These are the kinds of questions best suited to a local Linux User Group
or LUG (see [2] below). If there is not a LUG near you, many groups have
email discussions (mailing lists) where the members help each other. One
example is the [3]San Antonio Linux Users Group, which I attend. You may
join the mailing list using the link on the left side of the screen. (To
get started, you shouldn't need a separate account for AT&T/Yahoo. My
@sbcglobal.net account works fine in Linux.

And again, welcome to computing freedom!  --Don
