I am new to Linux and need some help to understand some things...
I downloaded the Debian package from the Debian website, 14 CD IMAGES... I started the installation following some tips from this website http://www.linuxdevcenter.com/pub/a/linux/2005/09/29/installing_debian.html?page=1
things that I don't understand:
1) the setup asked about the source from which APT can install packages... I choose cdrom and then it scanned the 14 cds I have
2) after that, I think it tried to look for updates but I had this error:
stable/updates/main Packages Could not connect to security.debian.org:80 (18.104.22.168), connection timed out
it tried a couple of times then said the installation is finished and u can start using debian...
two things from here: I never got to this page http://www.linuxdevcenter.com/pub/a/linux/2005/09/29/installing_debian.html?page=3
where u can choose what to install, second thing I need to install KDE or GNOME on my debian system... do I need to download the package or is it on one of the cds I got
I would appreciate any advice on this... thanks in advanced
