Debian and its clones After reading many of the posts regarding the recent OSNews story, "An Unbiased Review of Debian 3.0", I thought this article may be useful to those who would like to try Debian, but are a little intimidated by its installer. Several of the posts to the above mentioned story indicated that Debian's installer was a huge hurtle for many people, who would otherwise like to try it. I have found Debian to be the most useful flavor of Linux, so I wanted to write an easy, though somewhat long, walkthrough in the hopes of allowing a wider audience to experience first hand this stable and unique Linux distribution.

insulting modem users

"I would like to offer my sincere apologies to all the modem users out there. Not only because I can't walk you through this part, but also because you are using modems."

I call that adding insult to injury. That attitude is one of the primary reasons I bought Libranet and am a happy camper. They delivered to my doorstep and they are not patronizing.

I quite sincerely wish you good luck in your endeavor to increase mindshare for Debian. You're going to need it.
