Using the update cd from removable media (ie zip)
I'm doing the semi-sneakernet method of Debian 30r1 procurement. Grab the iso images via jigdo at a site with dedicated T1. Split the files onto zip disk. Reassemble them on home machine. Burn to CD.
This is much faster than my previous method of building a Debian box. Base install with floppies. Get update via modem. Use sneakernet with wget on remote Unix and download debs to T1 site Windows-zip-drive-capable machine.
Everyone with me? ;-)
So I'm in the process of zipping up CD's two and three. And I noticed the update 30r1 files. I imagine that there will be additional updates to Woody. And even though cd's are cheap, I find it hard to burn a cd that will become obsolete in time.
So to make a short story long. Can I copy the updated iso image to a zip disk and perform updates from there? Or is there a more clever way of doing so?
Thanks in advance.
