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

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

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

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


Eventually found that those files required for grub2 does not exist on
the installation drive.

So in the meantime will leave it at that.
