I honestly inform you that you _are_not_ready_ for sid.

Always is there a first time to do the things.

Rodolfo, Sid hasn't got a installer, you have to install lenny / etch and then upgrade / full-upgrade to sid changing /etc/apt/sources.list as people said.

Like other  said too, a good connection is good for sid (because there are many changes daily)

Welcome to Debian Sid World !
