Standard install (see Section 4.4.3). Choose boot media with F12 on boot. Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS Version 4 is already installed. Replace with Debian GNU/Linux. Choose guided full repartition.

Install: lang=English, location=Australia, kb=American English, network none, hostname=adam, partition.

The partition automatically chosen was:

/ 259M sda1
/usr 4.6G sda5
/var 2.8G sda6

Set root passwd, user account, apt install.

Reboot and Gnome (GDM) started no problem.
