Thank you . According to the Debian page , the current network installation iso image is 'debian-504-i386-netinst.iso' that I have tried with . I tried to define my netwirk settings according to your comment , i.e. defining them inside /etc/network/interfaces . But still the gw-address cannot be PING , nor the dns . Can you please give me a hint on this ?
