Carry out an "expert" installation and select the "remote console" from
the list of additional modules to load. That may not be the exact text,
but it's similar. To start an expert installation, type "expert" at the
"boot:" prompt (there are other ways of getting there, but that's probably
the easiest).

Carry out an "expert" installation and select the "remote console" from

the list of additional modules to load. That may not be the exact text,

but it's similar. To start an expert installation, type "expert" at the

"boot:" prompt (there are other ways of getting there, but that's probably

Thanks for the info, I will try this out. After sending this email I also found the following references :



http://wiki.debian.org/DebianInstaller/Remote

http://wiki.debian.org/DebianInstaller/NetworkConsole



But the "expert" option seems to be the easiest at the moment.



Thanks!



Fred.

I just wish to report success! It was quite easy and worked really well.

Cheers,
