Re: Install directly from SID?
I don't know if sid (unstable) can be installed directly.
I have successfully installed woody (testing) directly via ftp by following
the instructions at http://cdimage.debian.org/ch11.html, but substituting
/dists/stable/main/disks-XXXX/ with /dists/testing/main/disks-XXXX/current/
i.e., I download the basic install files from
under Windows, ran the file install.bat from a safe-mode command prompt, and
followed the instructions. No need to install potato (stable) first.
