Installing Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 For Intel x86 - Footnotes


1

Note that we do make available many packages which do not meet our criteria of being free. These are distributed in the contrib area or the non-free area; see the Debian FAQ, under ``The Debian FTP archives''.

2

For information on how to locate and unpack Debian source packages, see the Debian FAQ.

3

After installation you can enable Boot Sector protection if you want. There is no need to tamper with Master Boot Record (MBR) after the boot manager has been set up. This offers no additional security in Linux but if you also do Windows it may prevent a catastrophe.

4

Note that kerneld is replaced by kmod and you have to select ``Kernel module loader'' instead. The Linux 2.2 kernel is not fully supported by Debian 2.1; see Using the Linux 2.2 Kernel with Debian 2.1, Section 8.5 for details and workarounds.
