Just download the net-install or the businesscard and install everything through network

have in mind that if you do the network installation in a slow network it will take time

Downloading 20 CDs will take longer :)

why just not download the basics and then install what is required from apt, net install of the whole system is not a good idea in a slow network(if its slow of course)

If you calculate the time to download the first cd on that slow network and then apply all the necessary updates (from network of course) it might take longer than a true net-install.

i dont agree , but think that you will already have a system ready to work with the basics, and not just wait to fulfill a network installation!!
also lets not forget that a critical part of the system will be ready to go!!! so you save time from there etc,etc!!

before discussing net-install u should be certain that it is possible! if he uses wifi then he can probably forget it with etch since it is outdated (although i think they did add some support in the last couple of months it is still very possible that it will not work)

i also think downloading the first cd is the better choice because u get a hard copy of ur system (well atleast the base system) and u still can work with the pc while u download and if u have problems with ur connection during download (of the cd) the damage will be much less than if u have problems during net-install..

if u havent downloaded anything yet it might be a good idea to wait till lenny gets out :)

eem Guys no disrespect or anything but the time taken for this conversation ( which I am under the impression is still not over ) was sufficient for both a net install as well as for downloading the 1st cd and performing the installation twice ;)

Christodoulos to confirm :D
