I did nothing to 'avoid' the option, quite simply it was not made

I'm not sure whether the DVD contains beta4 - the write up merely

the latest Debian DVD build made with the jigdo tool"
At the end of the base install, I was given the options:-
Use bootloader Grub
Use bootloader Lilo
Proceed without a bootloader
Then comes reboot, which I cannot do - if I could, I would go to the
base system configuration tool menu.
Why can't you reboot?
The ability to reboot has more to do with how you have your boot
options set in the bios than anything else.
On installs, have your first boot option set as cdrom, your second as
hdd0, or whichever drive you are installing to.
Then, when you remove the install CD from the cdrom, boot
automatically passes to the harddrive, and you're away.
You don't need to create a boot disc to boot, I bypassed the option on
I don't understand how you do that.
After extracting the DVD and changing the first boot option back to
booting goes from floppy to hdd0 which boots the only OS bootable from
the MBR. I haven't made the partition on which Sarge is being installed
as I assume that might cause problems. Is that what you do?
