As said in my original posting, the optical drive in a new(ish) computer

so as to enable installation, which the netinst image would not allow.

An incoreect assumtion. The official media do not contain non-free
material. However, in an endeavour to be helpful to users:


Thank you for that.

I was not previously aware of that provision.

On the web page, it is not stated, but, do we assume that the version there (only one CD version is listed), is the ix86 version?

Thank you in anticipation.
