I will say though, that if you haven't read the installation docs, you
should do so as this is surely answered there.

great! progress!

  When I log into debian and type

tasksel --new-install

it asks me for choices, of which I checked "desktop" and "standard".

It then asks me to put

Debian GNU/Linux testing _Etch_ _Official Snapshot i386 CD Binary-1

in the drive '/cdrom/' and press enter

okay. Have you registered the cd's with apt? I don't know how this
works, but you have to have the cd's listed in your
/etc/apt/sources.list and you may have to also do some other mojo to
ge tthe recognised. i'm thinking its something like apt-cd or
something like that.

I think apt-cdrom add is what your looking for:)


I do this, and the message remains. It seems not to be recognizing the CD. My guess is that somehow it doesn't recognize the appropriate device. I think some poking around
said that /dev/cdrom was redefined as "hdr"

I don't think this is causing the problem, but the name of the CD, as it describes itself,
is slightly different, saying it's "etch" rather than _etch_.
