Cargo Install Log

The beta3 release of the Debian Installer with a boot floppy and USB Flash disk for the netinst image were used.

Boot from the Floppy. When asked, insert the USB memory stick and continue. There is no DHCP on the local network so a static network was configured.

Configure the time zone as Australia/ACT. Add Root and User accounts. For apt choose HTTP. Don't do any task selection for now. No specific exim4 options need be selected - set up as a local system.

Install ssh and then copy a master sources.list file, followed by apt-get update (the CD is no longer required) and then apt-get install wajig to get things going:

  # mv /etc/apt-get/sources.list /etc/apt-get/sources.list.orig
  # scp athens:/etc/apt-get/sources.list /etc/apt-get/sources.list
  $ apt-get update
  $ apt-get install wajig
  $ wajig update
  $ wajig dist-upgrade
