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

 
http://[your_favourite_debian_mirror]/dists/testing/main/disks-i386/current/

under Windows, ran the file install.bat from a safe-mode command prompt, and
followed the instructions. No need to install potato (stable) first.
