My remark is about the following text :

"There are four options for installs over the network:

    * Small CDs
    * Smaller CDs
    * Tiny CDs, USB sticks, etc.
    * Network boot"

(page http://www.debian.org/distrib/netinst.en.html )

The problem is that, because normal CDs are not mentionned in the list
of media on which the image can be written, people could logically think
it is not allowed/possible to use normal a normal CD in the present
procedure of installing via the Internet.

Therefore I think we should add this fifth possibility (normal cd) to
the four already mentionned.
