i'm planning on installing debian woody on my computer. i have a free 3Gb partition on which i plan to install it...the system will be dual booting, because i've got a working linux distro on another partition. the things that puzzle me are:
1. is "vanilla" the most complete flavour when it comes to device support
2. i already said that i have another linux installed...i plan to use it parallel with debian. can both linux distros use the one 196Mb swap partition i already have???
3. i'm downloading 7CD's of woody and one update cd. the second iso is named like the first cd but there's on _NONUS after it...i'm from bulgaria so i use cyrillic characters...do i have to boot that cd?

at least for now these are my questions!
thanks very much in advance!
i'm really looking forward to installing my woody!
just some more disk to be downloaded smile.gif

The BF24 kernel is the best WOODY kernel (from a device support perspective).

I'm not sure about the non-english characters ... but you can just download the #1 cd and do the a network install instead of getting all 7 CD's .... If you have a broadband connection.

Yes, you can share swap partitions between linux installs.
