Re: [PLUG] simple Debian install?

If you can find a cd of Storm linux (now out of
business) they have a great installer. Then just
change the apt sources to use regular debian stuff.
Come to think of it. I dunno why Debian-like distros
just didn't learn from Storm's installer - it's really
slick and easy. The regular Debian installer isn't
aweful but it does take some getting used to. I have
it down to a science now as long as I know what the
hardware is that is that it's going on to. Also -
there is tons of documentation on the Debian install
at the web site. Once you get it going and learn how
to use it you'll dig it. I still use Mandrake on my
desktop but Debian definitely has it's advantages. -
