First of all, 90% of the time woody is broken. If it's a leading-edge

Regarding upgrading a Potato Debian to Woody, I beseech you for aid!
Given your hints that there is a point in the installation process
where you can choose to install Woody instead of Potato, I wiped my
disk for the third time and proceeded with a reinstall.
Failure. I noticed no point which was an opportunity to install Woody
and ended up with a Potato box again. I quickly fixed LILO to let me
get back to Windows 2000 so I could e-mail this message.
I read over the installation manual included on the Debian CD in both
HTML and PDF format with no enlightenment occurring.
Mommy, make Debian give me Woody! Bahahaha -- Yes, I'm almost at the
point of tears, at least metaphorically speaking.
P.S. Nor can I find a document entitled "How To Select Potato / Woody
/ Sid" on GNU/Debian.
P.P.S. Could you please send me your e-mail address again as the
previous mail is on my Linux partition.
