Booting from CD/DVD
First, download (or otherwise obtain) the ISO disk image and burn it
to a blank CD:
$ jigdo-lite jigdo [...]: http://ftp.acc.umu.se/cdimage/release /4.0_r0/amd64/jigdo-dvd/debian-40r0-amd64-DVD-1.jigdo $ cdrecord -data debian-40r0-amd64-DVD-1.iso
Place the CD/DVD into the CD/DVD drive and turn the computer on. Ensure your computer has booting from CD-ROM enabled (this may be a function of the BIOS so you may need to go into the BIOS setup program at boot time, or else, on Dell computers, press the F12 function key to see a Boot Options menu).
Once you have booted from the DVD you will see the Debian logo and will be be asked to press Enter to boot Debian--do so.
