weird error during installation
today i had some weird experience in installing debian.
first of all i want to say that in installing debian more than once, 9 out of every 10 attempts ...
DEBIAN ...... FAILSSSSSSS miserably
may be its just between debian and my computer
i was really excited to get the new installer
with the new installer i was able to do net install of a basic system
then somehow i was able to install gnome by doing the apt-get thing
[ i did not run tasksel ...... i should have done it ]
then i realized noo this is not the way .. lets reinstall it
damn .... then the nightmare starts ....... the next attempts usually fails
anyways i decided to download the complete CD 1 of woody and install it
it installed but then
when doing apt-get install x-window-system
it locked up .... screaming something " insert Cd in cdrom " blah blah blah
i dont know why the hell it was trying to use cd since i also added http as a source for apt
rebooting and reinstalling fixed the problem but using woody iso it did not detect my video card and none of the ati drivers worked
so i went back to the new debian beta installer and did a net install
gave me same problems
wont apt-get from http
it would not let me do so
i tried it over and over again ...........
same error saying something like can not locate the cd .... insert cd

If you edit /etc/apt/sources.list and remove the entrie for your cdrom you will be able to apt-get from http sources.
