Unfortunately to make a working Debian CD there is quite a lot of work to
do, most of which requires the use of a Unix box, probably specifically a
Debian box. Under NT you probably won't be able to do this. The script
slink_cd that I have produced is the one used to produce the standard
images that we're hoping the vendors will use, and I can attest that it
won't work on Windows. Maybe it would be better for you to use one of
these images instead; check cdimage.debian.org for locations of mirrors.

Slink is currently the frozen version, ready for release in a couple of
weeks. If you want the latest, then that's what you want. If you want
the last stable release then that would be hamm (2.0).
