OK, thanks.  I have now already installed using the binary-1 CD.  I
have installed quite a couple of Debian systems using netinstall
(indeed all installations I have done were netinstall installations),
but it was always in a working network environment.  This time I
wanted to replace my home brewn completely self compiled
router/mail/news/dhcp/dns server with pppoe to the provider with a
Debian installation.  I still have some problems with the SCSI and
LVM2 setup.  See other posting.
