Dead End in your web site
On page http://www.uk.debian.org/debian-cd/ch11.html
You want to install Debian GNU/Linux on one computer, and that computer
has a free Internet connection.
-!- Solution: You don't need to download the CD images at all.
Download the /dists/stable/main/disks-XXXX/ directory from a Debian FTP
mirror (addresses: http://www.debian.org/distrib/ftplist); substitute the
`XXXX' for your architecture, for example `i386' or `alpha'. This one
directory is all you need to get Debian up and running. After this, your
new Debian system can connect directly to a Debian FTP mirror to
automatically fetch and install anything else you need.
The CDs contain vast amounts of programs that you won't use at all. The
procedure described above will thus save you lots of download time (i.e.
you can start installing much earlier) and will also reduce the strain on
our heavily loaded FTP servers. Another advantage is that, using this
method, your system can be upgraded automatically when new packages arrive
on the FTP sites (you don't have to wait for a new CD).
So this is great advice, and I am doing it, but where do I go next? I could
not find anything in the "installation manual" that talked about using the
'disks-whatever' directory as a starting point for an internet based install.
I will figure it out, I guess, but you might consider expanding this page a
bit for future users.
I am not yet a member of debian-cd so if there are replies that might get
me going, I'd appreciate a copy.
