Well I think I'd better explain my situation:
Have decide recently to move to Debian (fully support its policy) so I went
on the net and found the necessary stuff to install the base1_3 system.
Installed very well without a problem on my old 486/33 no CD. The only way
to install from a CD is to mount the CD on a server in our site and export
it for NFS mounting.
The problem is that I have installed the base1_3 system and just got my CD
that is Debian 1.2 Release !!!! What do I do ?? I HATE the downloads over
the net even if here at work I can do it freely !! Do I go backward to 1.2
?? Or - do I have a list of 1.3 files that are really required for
operation, development environment that I will have to dld and the remaining
stuff can be used from the 1.2 CD.
I need to have a clean devlp. environment, need that the libs be uptodate,
I believe that I can live with the X environment of the 1.2 distrib.
That's the situation, a specific list of 1.3 files essential from /net
