"Last month, the Debian Live Project released live CD and DVD
images of the next version of Debian, codenamed "Squeeze." (For an
overview of the various Debian repositories and codenames, see this
Wikipedia article.) They included an installer that uses the live
filesystem rather than packages, so it has the advantages of being
fast and allowing you to preview on the live media, what you
eventually get on your hard drive. This may not seem like a big
deal, since most modern Linux distributions use this installation
method, but it's still fairly new for Debian.
"I downloaded and installed the 64-bit GNOME version.
"A graphical, wizard-like installer (like Ubuntu's) is not
available; the installer runs in a terminal. (Other than nice
anti-aliased fonts, there's not much difference between the current
graphical installer and the traditional ncurses-based installer
anyway, so you're not missing much.)"
