    When I first installed Debian I had a 28.8k connection to the net.  That
was Hamm frozen.  I've done every upgrade since then on a 28.8k connection.

    When I installed Hamm onto my Laptop I had a 28.8k connection to the net.
 Every update to it has been over the net.

    I only got my cable modem last month.  I've never done an install or
upgrade of Debian *except* by 28.8k modem.  I've never owned a Debian CD that
I've installed off of (I have a bo CD around here from Infomagic somewhere,
never used it).  Trust me, I know what it is like.  It is a dream.
