Trying Debian Etch Linux

Last Wednesday this blogger downladed and burned a boot iso ‘network install’ of Debian Etch Linux. He was bored with computers and needed something new to play around with.

As I recall, the download was small, only about 125MB, so that part was quick on the good old broadband connection. When I rebooted the computer the iso did it’s thing and after I answered a few logical questions off it went to internet land to fetch the rest of the install. The whole process took about an hour to an hour and a half. Booting into Debian’s Gnome desktop for the first time was nothing exciting, probably because I’ve done this so many times before with so many other distros.
