Re: need sarge

Thanks, Robert!

I downloaded Contents-i386.gz from http://ftp.debian.org/dists/sarge/.

As I understand it, this is not an archive, but a single compressed
file.  I gunzipped it, which yields an 111MB file.

I am not sure what I have now.  If this is sarge, how do I install it?

Linux System Administration (O'reilly) is a cookbook how-to for
teaching Linux networking by builiding an internet server.  It was
written when sarge was the current version of Debian.  Unfortunately,
because of many changes between sarge and etch, the book seems to be
just about useless unless your running sarge. ( Unless, of course, you
already know how to build a Linux network server, but then why would
you do the project at all?)

Do I need to say it? Get a better book! :) Seriously, anything very out-of-date will teach you some bad habits. Security stuff, in particular. Amazon lists used books, try them. Or, if you boycott Amazon for good and sufficient reasons, try http://www.nerdbooks.com/ .
