Fixed some typos. Expanded and updated the section on floppies. Rearranged section 2, moving the urls to the top where other sections can refer to them. I have a section on installing from USB that needs this reorg, but am not committing it yet since the necessary udebs are all stuck in NEW. Here's the USB section, so you'll see why the big changes: 2.3 USB memory stick It's also possible to install from removable USB storage devices. For example a USB keychain can make a handy Debian install medium you can take with you anywhere. Your USB memory stick must have a DOS partition on it for this method to work. Most come with such a partition by default. To prepare your USB memory stick, download hd-media-initrd.gz and save it to a file named "initrd.gz" on the USB device. Make sure that the compressed image is not transparently decompressed by your browser. You must also include a Debian netinst CD image on your memory stick. See section 2.1 for details. Place the downloaded ISO on your memory stick; any filename is ok as long as it ends in ".iso". Some BIOSes can boot USB storage directly, and some cannot. 2.3.1 Booting directly from USB storage The author of this section has not yet succeeded in booting directly from USB storage, as all his hardware has too old a BIOS, but in theory you just need to put a kernel on the USB device, and set up a boot loader. The kernel can be gotten from the same place you'd get floppy images (see section 2.2), and is named vmlinuz. If you succeed, please post details to firstname.lastname@example.org so this section can be fixed. 2.3.2 Using USB storage and a boot floppy The debian-installer can be booted off a single floppy, which will be able to access your USB memory stick. To boot the installer this way, you will need to put the bootfloppy-image.img on a floppy (see section 2.2). Now boot from the floppy with the bootfloppy-image on it. It should detect your USB device and mount the initrd.gz, which will in turn find the ISO. After that things will proceed the same as if you had booted from CD.
