You can successfully install debian via ftp and modem, though 
perhaps not how you would expect to be able to do it.  I didn't 
find the debian installation procedure entirely intuitive; I 
found a few rough edges there, that could be confusing to a 
Linux novice.  I'd be happy to correspond with you privately on 
the subject.
