Um, I downloaded the Debian ISO file and burned it, but I can't figure out how to make a boot disk for it. THe computer I willl be installing it to doesn't have an operating system, so I may need more help. Thanks a bunch!!

Why do you want a boot disk? The debian ISO boots for itself unsure.gif

I meant a floppy boot disk, does anyone have any advice as to where to look on the CD or somewhere where I can download one? Thanks again.

There are more than 1 debain iso file ... and there is woody and the new sarge installer ...

I assume you want to boot from floppy and do the install off a CD ... or do you want to do the network install instead?

if you want to boot from floppy and do the cd install, follow the instructions here.

You probably want to use this same manual to do the install as well (if you are doing a woody install)...here is the table of contents for the install manual
