I only ever burn CD#1 (out of about 7). It will have 80% of what you
need, get the rest off the network.
.deb file are "similar" to rpms. The installer apt-get is *MUCH* nicer.
"apt-get install apache" would download apache and all needed dependencies,
and install them all.
Debian has several times the number of packages available that Redhat
In your /etc/apt/sources.list file you put a list of mirror servers,
I recommend these:
deb http://security.debian.org stable/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://linux.csua.berkeley.edu/debian/ stable main contrib non-free
And optionally these if you want non-US and source files:
deb http://non-us.debian.org/ stable/non-US main contrib non-free
deb-src http://linux.csua.berkeley.edu/debian/ stable main contrib non-free
deb-src http://non-us.debian.org/ stable/non-US main contrib non-free
