I have the same question ;-)

I would like to try out debian on one of my machines, but I didn't manage
to install it yet (I didn't try very hard and I'm definitely not very
good at doing userland things on linux, my domain is the kernel ;-)

So where can I find an up-to-date base filesystem, and is there an
installer boot-disk (I can floppy boot if necessary) that works (the last
time I tried one, it failed in lots of horrible ways) ? Or can someone
explain me how to change a manually un-tared base filesystem into a
working installation without the installer ?
