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.

This article is the best "how to" I have ever read to install Debian. I have tried 2 or 3 times to install Debian and failed. I always end of going back to RedHat, Mandrake, SUSE ...
I also tried to install Gentoo for about 2 months and failed. Again, I went back to RedHat...
However, armed with this article, I am going to try Debian again. I think it is the best distro out there.
Wish me luck!!
