Re: Debian GNU/Linux Guide to installation and usage


  I think the safest way is to install from
FDs. Fro teh files you asked, check the section
5.2 in the installation manual at this address:


  After you installed, learn how to use "deselect".
It's a very convenient package-management tool. You
can then install desried Debain packages from the net.

I recently purchased this book, being interested in the Debian distro, and
would like to install it on a computer that cannot boot from the cdrom.  I
read through the book until I got to chapter 2, page 20, where it gives
directions on how to make a bootup floppy from the included cd with which to
install Debian.  However, the procedures outlined include accessing
directories and files which were not on the disc. Specifically, there is no
subdirectory "DISK-I386" of d:\dists\slink\main.

In order to make the bootup floppies i need, it seems i need 3 files:
rawrite2.(exe, i assume), resc1440.bin, and drv1440.bin.  Where can I find
these on the internet, or if they aren't available on the internet, can
someone send them to me by email?
