While jigdo is the preferred method (it is used to _build_ the ISO,
not _get_ it, though in one sense that is just semantics), you can
find ISO images that are accessible via http or ftp :

First go here :
    http://www.debian.org/CD/
the 4th bullet is this link 
    http://www.debian.org/CD/http-ftp/
reading that page yields lots of links such as this one :
    http://ftp.planetmirror.com/pub/debian-cd/unofficial/
which leads directly to
    http://ftp.planetmirror.com/pub/debian-cd/unofficial/woody/i386/woody-i386-1.iso

Yeah, all that stuff about "Unofficial", it's because woody hasn't
officially been released as "stable" yet, so therefore it isn't
official.

It depends on what tools you have.  If you already have a debian
system, just use 'apt' :-).

The psuedo-image-kit wasn't all that bad.  It's how I managed my
reinstall after I had some hard disk problems (and had moved home and
no longer had T3 or better connectivity -- my first install was a
net-install with a pair of floppies).

The remote desktop feature of Windows XP is really nice (and *novel*!).
As a Microsoft consultant can *remotely* disable the personal firewall
and control the system.  We'll ignore the fact that this tampering with
the firewall is not logged, and more importantly, that the firewall
isn't restored when the clowns from Redmond are done with their job.
