begin  Paul J Collins quotation:

Practical if either:

(1) The machine has any form of Internet access, including 28.8 kbps
Get five floppy images from 

Specifically, rescue.bin, root.bin, driver-1.bin, driver-2.bin,
driver-3.bin .  Write them to floppies using either dd or RAWRITE.EXE .
Boot the rescue disk.  Continue through the installation as directed.
The Debian Base System (equivalent of 11 diskettes, whose images you 
_can_ retrieve and install from floppies) will by default be retrieved
and installed from the Internet via http.  You can then build up your
machine as desired, after that.  See:  http://linuxmafia.com/debian/tips


(2) You're within driving distance of Menlo Park, CA, 

That's where my house is.  We have a full Debian mirror on-site, and can
lend ethernet cards.


(3) You don't mind trying a set of pre-release, unofficial Debian

See the vendor list at http://www.debian.org/distrib/vendors
