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.

Just wanted to let you know that there are people who do appreciate the instructions. I've installed debian on many a machine, and I love it! (takes me WAY less time than with one of those all-wonder GUI installers). I had trouble telling people to try debian, because most of the people I know aren't willin to go hunting for answers. Well, now I can send them to this page ;) GREAT. Lets keep making debian a fun and powerful place to be.
