Re: Quick Question
OK Sten Anderson;
Thanks for the idea, how would I copy the disks from the cd to the
hard drive? Or can I tell LILO to boot the cd files? I am assuming
that the cd has anything I would need to get this to work. Also, just
for kicks, is there a way to just get the boot image from the cd and
put it onto the hard drive from Slackware? I know that this machine
is hard to do this with but I figure that once I have Debian installed
I can update it from that point on and not have anything to worry

AFAIK you need at least a bootable floppy drive *OR* a bootable CD-ROM
drive (such a thing is common in newer PCs) to install Debian GNU/Linux.
