Booting from CD/DVD
First, download (or otherwise obtain) the ISO disk image and burn it
to a blank CD:
$ wget http://gluck.debian.org/cdimage/testing/sarge_d-i/i386/rc1/\ sarge-i386-netinst.iso $ cdrecord -data sarge-i386-netinst.iso
Place the CD/DVD into the CD/DVD drive and turn the computer on. Ensure your computer has booting from CD-ROM enabled (this is a function of the BIOS so you may need to go into the BIOS setup program at boot time). You will be asked to press Enter to boot Debian--do so.
