Re: In as little as just 2 floppies, you too can have a potato....
How do you do it in two floppies? Last time I tried it forced me to use
I used either compact or ide-pci, I forget which, rescue and root disks,
and with a supported ethernet card (no modules, only the built into the
kernel ones), it will detect that you can do a network install of
everything, include the rescue disk contents. I think I lucked out with
this particular machine, because a number of other installs have needed the
driver disk, etc. :)
But it can be done in just 2 floppies. (maybe one 2.88 :) but that's a stretch)
As for the comment about CD installs, everyone can do a CD install,
everyone does. The beauty of Debian's mirror system is that it makes the
CD less important, and
someone who has a running system never needs to buy/burn a CD again. Try
that with a Mandrake, RedHat, etc.
