A CD Burner is so cheap nowadays that you can buy it and throw it away.

... and you would have a use: Burning CDs to install debian without
wasting your time with archaic loadlin stuff.

If you still insist to not buy a burner, ask a fried to burn the netinstall CD
for you. Why go the hard way if there is a simple way.

I would argue that, once I had it all together {which wasn't all that hard once the information came available} it worked great. This was relatively simple with no messy external media.

It even boots fine, now, except now it's looking for stuff that, for some odd reason, seems to have vanished in the few hours that it took for me to figure out how to get this far.

Are you guys like cleaning up the easy way of donig net installs now or something? And is it safe to assume that all Debian Dists have the same basic file sets?

In other words, for every file that was mentioned in the prior e-mail, is there file that would be reachable by simply replacing "Potato" with "Sarge?"

I will find out! {Giggles}
