Thanks a lot!
I have now successfully installed Debian with image firmware-6.0.6-amd64-
i386-netinst.iso and it works fine. I used that because I read that my wifi card
needs non free firmware. However the WLAN configuration didn't work. The card
was detected but when trying to look for access points it wouldn't find any.
I ended up using the ethernet cable, but is it normal that it cannot find any
wlan network? The firmware seems to be installed, at least it asked to agree on
