I was contemplating installing Debian on the system and trying it out for a bit. I was looking at options for installing over the network instead of using a CD (out of sheer lazyness), and got to thinking whether it would be possible to install a distro (specifically Debian) using nothing but a Live CD and the net.

Anyone ever do it before? Is it possible? Can you teach me :D?

I have never done it from the LiveCD but have used the mini.iso to install Ubuntu and a Debian net install cd for debian. The mini.iso is about 9.5 Mb,
it is available here:
