Re: Sarge Version of Debian?
If you use the net-installer, you better hope that your ethernet works
automatically. I tried a nightly, and my 8139 chipset seemed to not
want to be found. Perhaps I did something wrong, but I was hoping
something like that would be autoconfigured for me. Something to keep in
Jigdo really is not a pain to use at all, I found it quite simple. Just
ignore most of its output as it can be rather confusing and misleading.
For a long time I thought it was only able to find 5/4000something
files, but decided it was good enough to build an image anyways. So, I
kept canceling it, trying to find better mirrors, when finally I
realized it was just telling me that it had downloaded an additional 5
files that were needed. If I just ran it and ran away it would have
been half as frustrating.

This is of interest to me because I 'm about to reinstall debian on a

ideal method? I don't mind net installs, but I don't know whether to use
the 100MB image, or the 30MB net-installer or the PGI GUI installer or
install a bare woody and dist-upgrade to sarge/testing?
jigdo seems a big pain, but I can probably get it going on my Windows
system if I absolutely MUST.
any suggestions or warnings would be most appreciated.

No. One has only small CD images of around 100 MiB.
