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.

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.

Please don't take offense. I was merely joking. Actually, I would like to make this document as useful as possible to everyone. I simply don't have a modem, or access to a dial-up account.

If I can find somebody with a dial-up account and a modem, I would be happy to do it and add documentation for modems to this walkthrough.
