you only need 1.

this is the net installer, it can be used to install anything, a straight install will give you a gnome DE->

this is for kde->

this is for xfce4->
http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/4.0_r1/i386/iso-cd/debian-40r1-i386-xfce-CD-1.iso


i use the net installer most of the time, i like to do my own build ups, so when it comes to the software part, i uncheck everything to get a base install, than i just apt-get from there. :)

forgot just hitting enter will use the text install, if you want the pretty installer type> installgui <than enter

why do you have to build from source? debian has 20000+ packages(software) in the repo.

in a terminal> su < then type> apt-get update
then
apt-get install synaptic
then just open synaptic and you can see everything in the repos, you might want to turn on more repo's, but we'll save that for later.

what version did you go with?

the newest one, 4.0 which i think is etch?

i will have to look at the synaptic thing i just thought that i was going to have to build things from source. I still would like to get better at it. I have yet to get it to work with Firefox. so i don't know.

P.S don't send me links about building things from source

no, i mean which desktop you chose? gnome, kde, xfce4

firefox in debian is called iceweasel. you can get it by using the terminal or synaptic>
su
apt-get install iceweasel

but it should already be installed, look under network.

you should have both epiphany and iceweasel to play with if you went with gnome. iceweasel is firefox so you don't need to install that. epiphany uses the same gecho engine, but is very limited in configuration. it's really tied into gnome, so in gnome it's pretty responsive, as in fast startup, but no where near as good as a setup as iceweasel/firefox. epiphany is for people who can't handle a real browser.

You should try Epiphany before installing iceweasel/firefox, I apt-geted iceweasel, tried for a week and went back to epiphany. Try Epiphany and if you don't like it, then go for iceweasel.

I installed iceweasel the moment after i posted last and liked it very much, I do like it becaues it is.... well.... firefox, and i really enjoy using firefox. I did use epiphany for a while (before you told me about iceweasel) and it just felt like i was using plain bland web browser ( i don't know if i am conveying my self properly, but that is what i felt like).

yeah, i tested epiphany for a month on various platforms and setups. i just absolutely hated how locked down it was, it felt like using IE in linux. given it does have a fast start time in gnome, but thats only because it is so tied in, just like IE. it feels so much like proprietary software, you got to get into the guts to change simple things. uhh, hate it. :lolflag:

when i was posting my last one that was on the tip of my (finger tips i guess). It really does feel like IE. I just didn't want to put that because i didn't want to **** anyone off. But since it was said: i must say, I agree.

You'll get it in the first DVD.
