The Infomagic CD set had the wrong version of Debian.  You do not want
to install 1.0.  You need 0.93R6 which is available on some other CD's
such as Pacific High Tech's November CDROM.

I suggest that you wait until you can reach www.debian.org, or find
one of the mirror sites.  There is a draft of an installation manual
available which will help.
