Default Choosing which file to download

Hello,

*

I’m new to debian and would like to give it a try in my computer.* I noticed that there are two options for download.* CD or DVD?* Is one better than the other?*
My second question is there are a number of difference files to download.* Which one would I use download if I’m running an IBM Levono ThinkCenter M55e Tower Core Duo 2.13 Ghz.

*

Thanks!

*

If you have a descent connection CD 1 is fine. If you have access to a descent
connection but you intend to install at a location that doesn't have the
greatest connection the DVD's might be better for you. CD 1 will get you a
base system installed including a desktop environment and then you will be
able to retrieve any additional packages and updates via the net.

You can chose between 32 or 64 bit. I would suggest to go with Lenny/Testing
as it is about to become the stable release by the end of the month.

Hi, Jeremy.

http://live.debian.net/debian-cd/5.0_beta2/i386/iso-cd/

I'd go for the debian-live-lenny-i386-gnome-desktop.iso.

That link is painfully slow. ~ 5K/s

No need for a liveCD if you plan to install.

http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/weekly-builds/i386/iso-cd/debian-Lenny-DI-
rc2-i386-CD-1.iso

That will do the trick. And the torrent will probably be even faster than the
above link.

rc2-i386-CD-1.iso.torrent

Didn't know that.

Right. But what if he just wants to explore?
