Re: Debian 2.0 install
Regarding all the acquisition methods in dselect from the boot
* there are too many, it is confusing!
* some of them suck and should be removed (no offense, please)
* I need need *need* documentation for what acquisition methods are
better for what media (cdrom, local filesystem, ftp, ftp with proxy
requiring auth, etc, etc, etc). Could someone please even just send
me an ascii file documenting the acquisition methods?
I think this is the current list:
cdrom Install from a CD-ROM.
multi_cd Install from a CD-ROM set.
nfs Install from an NFS server (not yet mounted).
multi_nfs Install from an NFS server (using the CD-ROM set) (not yet mounted).
harddisk Install from a hard disk partition (not yet mounted).
mounted Install from a filesystem which is already mounted.
multi_mount Install from a mounted partition with changing contents.
mountable Install from a partition named in fstab
floppy Install from a pile of floppy disks.
ftp Install using ftp.
http Install using http:, ftp:, and file: URLs.
apt APT Acquisition [file,http,ftp]
