    Live USB From ALL Debian Install Discs?


    Hello, all!

    I am in a location with very, very slow internet (270kbps split up amongst up to 30 concurrent users). Because of this, I am for the most part unable to download things in any kind of timely manner.

    So, I am needing to install Debian on a computer. Before coming here, I downloaded the 3 Debian install DVD .iso images so that I would not need to download anything.

    Unfortunately, it turns out that most of the computers here do not have DVD drives... only CD readers.

    So, here is what I am planning: Create a CD that will allow me to boot to a USB device, then install Debian from a flash drive

    What I am here for: I would like to be able to put the contents of all 3 DVDs onto a flash drive, and install from there.

    Is this possible?

    Thanks!

    Most software you need is going to be on the first DVD.

    The later DVDs / CDs should just be additional packages. If you need to, you could combine all those packages into one ISO, but you'd have to remake the package index on that ISO.
