[lug] Using Debian

If you need them I have an entire set of Woddy CDROMs (jigdo is your
friend) that I created because my work machine has a built-in network
controller that Woody didn't have a driver for. Thus I had to install,
grab the kernel sources, then build the driver. Since I wasn't sure
which disk had what I'd need I just built them all - besides, that
gave me a chance to use the new hardware on the home machine :)

This, btw, is most likely overkill. There is a mini-iso for booting
off of and if your hardware is supported you can just use that to
boot from and then install over the network. For the 701C Thinkpad I
used the set of 6 floppies for the initial boot and then installed
everything else over the wire.
