    Wrong download?


    I'm going to install Debian in a 5 year old computer that's not connected to the internet. I just started downloading the .iso images in my laptop to burn them to a CD to install in the other pc but I think I might have downloaded the wrong set. Are my assumptions correct?

    (Red arrow are the ones I'm downloading and Green are the ones I think I need)

    Ok, so I'm in my lunch hour and just came home to start downloading the right .iso image, but when I downloaded the netinstall, all I had to do was click on the disk and it would simply start downloading. This one takes me to a different menu. Guidance anyone?

    EDIT: The picture might clarify my confusion.

    I think Debian has something like 3 DVD iso's that make up the complete set, and something like 24 CD iso files for the complete set.

    So what's all the shenanigans about alpha, amd64, arm and all that?

    Here's the link to where I'm at. LINK TO WHERE I'M AT

    ozar is corect there is 24 cds

    but to install Debian base system you will only need the first 3 or 4
    the rest contain over packages
