Debian can be downloaded from the Internet, or bought from a number of
CD vendors. For more information, go to http://www.debian.org/distrib/

Velocom, an argentinian ISP]
LinuxWias apparently isn't packaged for Debian. The easies thing you can
do is to install the "alien" package, and convert the RPM to a Debian
package using "alien -c linuxwias*rpm" (once you have it downloaded);
after that, install it using "dpkg -i linuxwias*deb"
