    I recommend debian sarge with kernel 2.4.27........this is a very stable version...............after installation, you might want to upgrade to 686 version of that kernel, if you are using a new P4 processor..............you do this with synaptic

    The new FTP install version of Sarge is a snap to run and install, unlike previous Debian installs I tried and gave up on. I love my two Debian Etch boxes which I upgraded from the Sarge ftp install. I had more fun installing Debian than I had installing Gentoo!
    Go for it! You're gonna love it!

    Most use the "netinst CD"(only 100MB).
    This will install the base system from CD and download all other packages you need during installation(will take some time since you have a slow connection though).

    The member already said they had a poor speed internet.
    What does DSL have to do with anything?

    If your internet connection is as slow as you say then:

    1. Try and have a friend download the Sarge CD Image.
    Then just burn it and use it on your system to install Debian.

    2. Download & burn the CD Image yourself.
    At least this way you can still use your box while downloading.

    hey....why don't you get ubuntu.......they ship free cds + free S&H.......I am thinking of changing from debian to ubuntu......

    -------------------

    the 30MB is a business card and requires more netinstall time, compared to the 108MB [both 30 & 108 require net-installation]

    you can't really work on your system since the 30/108 do not contain gnome or kde.......you would have to wait until they are net-installed.....

    You want the CD image listed below.
    The ones you listed are the net-install CD's.

    Debian-31r0a-i386-binary-1.iso

    Only problem is the Ship-It system at Ubuntu takes a minimum of 4-8 weeks.
