"Debian has a reputation for being difficult to install. Relax. The basic installation and configuration work will be time consuming. I don't believe you will encounter anything that you will consider difficult. Remember, this is Cheap and Easy Linux server centrism!

Part of Debian's difficult reputation may stem from the wide selection of installation methods made available to us by Debian's developers. That isn't bad, that's a Good Thing. All these choices may appear confusing, but they make it possible to use Debian on the widest possible range of hardware, and to obtain Debian at no cost easily under most circumstances.

You just can't beat a deal like that!

Rather than discuss Debian's mission and philosophy -- it's all at Debian's Web site , and is well worth a read. We will devote space instead to a more in-depth, detailed description of a Debian installation than we did with Slackware and Red Hat. By walking though this together, we will dispel Debian's fierce reputation -- and reveal it for what it is: A good, solid, easy-to-use distribution that doesn't break down under the weight automation."
