Downloading Debian

I am trying to download debian (woody) from the net, i am doing
this from a MS OS (Server 2003) and i am using jigdo for the download. I find the documentation a bit confusing.

Firstly i have downloaded a template and jigdo file for each CD of Debian
eg woody-i386-1.jigdo and woody-i386-1.template

But i dont understand how to get the ISO for each CD, i think i must be dumb because the docs  are not to clear to me.

Can some one please give me some advice

No, I found it confusing as hell too - though on my third try of downloading the DVDs I succeeded - I'd suggest looking at www.linuxiso.org for links to download pre-made ISO images and not through debian's web site directly.

jigdo is a special system to build and update cd's, it's more meant for dev's or ppl who frequently need new cd's to reduce download sizes.
I'd suggest you just do a net install and download what you need as you go along
if you still want woody you go here:
for a netinstall:
http://www.debian.org/distrib/netinst
for a full cd iso set
http://www.linuxiso.org/distro.php?distro=4

if you'd rather go for sarge (the beta new version)
you go here:
http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/
and download their net installer or businesscard image

Hi mustekkzn


if you need debian for non-production server I suggest download Debian GNU/Linux 3.1 "Sarge" I'm using it now without problems. Do not download all cd's you will need max 2 and then apt-get tool will do the rest. Or download just netinstall iso wich have 110.4 MB and rest of installation will be from internet

http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/


for production server woody best choice is ofcouse woody. Also download just max 2 cd's from link above or do network installation only.
