In the meantime I disvovered the following:
The woody CD DOES boot, when trying 3 times :-)
It gives some error message, when trying to boot it.
The messages disappears very fast - no time to read it.
tried agan - trying to hit scroll-lock - to slow.
tried again - it boots !
This is reproducible! Third try is always successfull.
strange windows-like behaviour ;)
I installed the base system from the woody CD.
Compliments to the debian community at this point:
an excellent installer! (This is my first debian install)
No that I have the base system running, I would like to switch to
"testing". How do I do that?
