You're supposed to be able to find this section of the manual:
http://www.debian.org/releases/stable/i386/ch04s02.html.en

As http://www.debian.org/releases/stable/i386/ch04s03.html.en has a link 
to that section, I don't feel it is unreasonable to expect that you _are_ 
able to find that section.

After all, this is all in a chapter called "Obtaining System Installation 
Media", which sounds like a logical place to check.

I have made some minor changes to both the webpage and the installation 
guide that will hopefully make finding the images a bit easier.

Cheers,
FJP
