Welcome to the wonderful world of Debian.
You have successfully smashed head-on into the first obstacle placed in
Cunning newbie test #1 -- see if the poor unfortunate newbie is smart
enough to find the documentation, AND read it.
Cunning newbie test #2 -- see if the poor unfortunate newbie is dumb
enough to actually BELIEVE what said documentation says.
(You *cannot* be serious!)
[ You will of course, find boot.bat under /install -- NOT /boot.
Don't ask. ]
Moral -- treat all documentation as if it were written by malicious
minded, evil little pranksters.
[ Or at the very least, creative typists who would really rather be
writing best-selling masterpieces of pure fiction. ]
It's better for your sanity.
Once you've adjusted your mindset to little things like this, you'll find
Debian is the best Christmas present you ever got!
