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
install Debian. However, the procedures outlined include accessing
directories and files which were not on the disc. Specifically, there is
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?
