    Test Woody Mini-ISO with kernel choices available
    Submitted by lordsutch on Monday, April 08, 2002 – 15:24
    Chris Lawrence has put together a mini-ISO of woody that allows you to choose which kernel flavor (compact, idepci, vanilla, bf24) you want to use when booting from the CD. For more details, see this email to debian-boot and debian-cd. Any feedback (by email, here, or via irc), particularly regarding its ease of use; ideally, it shouldn’t be any harder than using the “old-style” rescue disk prompts.

    will I ever be able to use this Mini-ISO to install Debian via PPP?

    what good is a network install iso if you can’t connect to your network?

    talk about excluding a large percentage of possible users…

    (I also noticed that there were no options for adding modules to the kernel when installing; is this ‘feature’ supposed to encourage people to download and compile the latest and greatest (un)stable kernel?)

    The ISO includes ppp, pppoe, pptp, and wireless-tools, so you should be able to connect to any network you need after going through base-config.

    Since all of base is on the image, you don’t need to go to the net until after rebooting, by which time you should have the complete base system available.

    oops…I was thinking of this one:


    maybe it applies to the ones mentioned in the articles, too.
