Debian Install


Generally, at the boot prompt, simply press enter. For Debian 3.0 you can choose to install the 2.4.18 kernel at the boot prompt:

  boot: bf24

Install of base takes about 1 hour, depending on network connection. Install of all additional packages can take quite some time, depending on network connection. Connected to a local Debian mirror with high throughput took 1 hour.

The default is to use DHCP (an automated mechanism for obtaining an IP address from a DHCP server) to automatically obtain network information. If you don't have a DHCP server available then tell the installer using the nodhcp option:

  boot: install nodhcp
