Default debian wheezy weekly builds

Good day,

Downloaded dvd-1 from .....
http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/weekly-builds/amd64/iso-dvd/ (19 Sept).

Is it possible to install debian from dvd-1 only ??

Installed it on an external usb drive..all went well untill...

Near the beginning was told some non-free files required..(names
provided) install by stick or whatever.

Skipped this.

The end ..unable to install grub.
So tried lilo. Still no go. So finished install.
So no booting.

Can not remember that such has happened to me with any of the flavours
tried.


Would like to try it out if I can boot it.
Some suggestions please
Thanks
Johan S

Years ago when it was stiill "hard" to install linux versions it was
proper to make different partitions.


Now just one partition for whole installation with no problem.

Really hope it stays that way. No problem with partitions becoming to small.
But for testing I would try this. Will just wait for possible more info
from list.

Installing GRUB has failed me many times... dunno why, but it only
happened with Debian :-)

Boot the system with a LiveCD or SGD. Afterwards, install GRUB as usual.
