Debian and its clones Debian is not quite like any other distro out there. If bigger is better, then Debian wins hands down. Aside from having the largest collection of free software packages, Debian also runs on 11 platforms. But there is more to Debian than just size. Travel writer and recent Debian convert Robert Storey tackles the whole installation procedure head on and gives his report.

if only i had read this when i was trying to install woody a few months ago. i managed to install it in the end, it took me about a month though to get it set up as a desktop system (ie, getting my winmodem to work, getting x to work, getting printing to work, getting cd burning to work, etc etc)

Still though, i learned alot about linux and now i can at least know where to start looking if somwthing starts going wrong.

I'd advise people to install libranet or look at morphix/knoppix if they were interested in linux.
