Bug#607193: document various download options/locations for Squeeze CD images

Package: www.debian.org
Severity: important

Starting with Debian Squeeze, there will be (more) download options/locations
for CD images, be them netinst/complete/etc. In particular, users of specific
pieces of hardware will be affected by the choice of images containing (or not)
non-free firmware for the Linux kernel.

We should document that on the website before the Squeeze release, obviously
the prominent links should point to Debian images; links to non-free firmware
images should be provided under big fat warnings that they are not part of
Debian and supported only to the extent that not having their source code
permits. Maybe, a link to the announcement text of today
(http://www.debian.org/News/2010/20101215) can be provided too?

I report this bug as important, as IMHO it should be fixed by the day Squeeze
gets released.

Many thanks in advance!
