    Any way to install Debian over wireless network?


    Hello, everyone. After being exposed to Debian and having fun with APT, I have decided to install Debian on one of my computers. I noticed on the Debian website that Debian has 14 installation CD's. The alternative is a network installation, but apparently, only wired ethernet cards can be used (no WiFi). My computer happens to have access to the Internet, but only through a wireless 802.11b networking card (Prism chipset). Is there any way to install Debian on my computer without having to burn 14 CD's?

    you don't need all 16 cds. In most cases only the first two are needed
