FW: Debian Installation ISO DVD Image Files

Hi Mihira,

Thank you very much for your email.

But my problem is when I download the DVD ISO Files it showing me only
372 MB for 1st ISO and 2nd ISO it's showing me 127MB is this right size.
That's what I want to confirm with you.

IS that the same size of the both ISO files what I have downloaded, even
I tried 2-3 times again & again it's the same size & I think no problem
in my internet downloads, its even fast download.

I think I should burn these ISO files on DVD's then I should try &
install right?

Eagerly waiting for your reply.

Better check your internet connection. Most likely yor downloading timed

out and left you with a partial download. Use the check sum given in the

site to see if you have the complete file.

Wrong. You cannot burn a DVD image on a CD. it wont work.

So what's the meaning of DVD ISO Files? I
