But, it does not work.


I suppose it is possible that the reason that the repositories

Yes - it's possible.
The routing table on that box will tell you if that is being used as a

Alternatively it could be your DNS server (either not working, or

I have given up.

I have had repeated attempts to write the Debian 6.04 "x386" DVD, using the "CD/DVD Creator" that is the default that came with Debian 6, that cannot create a bootable disc, and Brasero that cannot eject the disc, and I have not been able to obtain a bootable DVD of the Debian 6.04 "x386" version.

It appears that Debian simply does not instal and run on 32 bit Intel based chip systems anymore.

All that I have been able to do with Debian 6, in trying to instal it on the 32 bit computer, is create coasters, and waste bandwidth with the unusable downloads, and I have now, too many Debian 6 32 bit coasters.
