More USB install-images please!
I sometimes install Debian on machines belonging to family and friends.
On my latest install I tried the boot.img.gz on an USB-stick. It failed
halfway trough, complaining about a missing suitable ISO-image. Not
wasting time, I dd'ed the netinstall iso onto the stick and installed.
As far as I know, the debian-126.96.36.199-i386-netinst.iso is the ONLY one
that can be used on both USB and CD-rom. Why not give
debian-188.8.131.52-i386-CD-1.iso the same functionality???? The
netinstall-image install requires much time on slow lines.
I HAVE tried dd'ing debian-184.108.40.206-i386-CD-1.iso to a stick. It will
not boot. Didn't expect it to do either. Had to try.
