UPDATE: debian potato to woody transition
I was able to install Debian 2.2.26 on my system (Potato). I could not get
my network card to work once the system started up. I used all the drivers
1-4 but apparently the drivers for my network card were not loaded. While
booting up, the system does recognize the Realtek network card.
Is there a linuxconf or something similar where I could set the IP address
or have it receive one from the DHCP server?

I was earlier trying to get potato installed on to a system and had
several problems while doing so. I am actually assigned the task of
upgrading two of the production servers from potato to woody, and which
is why I wanted to install the old stable. I am a complete newbie to
debian and would like to learn as much as I can while doing the testing.
How does apt-get affect mysql databases and such other programs? I
would still like to install potato onto to a test system and try to get
it upgraded to woody using apt-get.
I started off with making the floppy disks (rescue.bin /root.bin )
but I get an error when I boot off of the rescue.bin. Then I made a
couple of more rescue.bins to make sure that the error was not in the
floppy disks but got the same error. I used rarrite2 for making these disks.
I have a CD RW at my dispense. Is there a way I could instead make a
bootable CD? I tried coping the rescue.bin at the top level onto a CD,
but obviously it did not work at all.
Your help is appreciated,
