2.2r2 Netinst iso by ElectricElf Contributed by markybob on Monday, April 09 @ 12:36:15 BST
One of Debian's great features is that you install packages and programs by downloading them off the 'net using apt-get. Because of this great feature, you don't need to burn a full 640M of packages which you may or may not use - hence "netinst" CDs.
This ISO has the basic Debian system on it. Burn it to a CD, and it's bootable. It will run through the Debian installation procedure. At one point, it will tell you that your "CD is not a valid Debian CD". That's allright. Just ignore it, and you'll move on to the next installation step - setting up 'apt' so that you can get the rest of your packages off the 'net. Nice and simple.
This particular "netinst" Debian CD is based on "Potato", or Debian 2.2, revision 2. It uses the Linux kernel 2.2.18pre21, which include such goodies as USB support 🙂
Another nifty use for a CD like this is that it's small enough to fit on "business card" CDs; small business-card-sized CDs. So you can have a bootable Debian installtion CD in your pocket... 'cause of course, you never know when you'll have to do an emergency Debian installation 😉
