Here we show step-by-step installation of the Debian Etch system for MOR.

The guide contains only the necessary packages.

An installation CD image can be downloaded from: http://www.debian.org/CD/netinst/

As an example, for the i386 platform we will use: http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/4.0_r3/i386/iso-cd/debian-40r3-i386-businesscard.iso


If your hardware is very new, it is possible that Etch will not understand some components - SCSI HDD, network card or similar.

In this case, download Debian Lenny(testing) from: http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/, example: http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/lenny_di_beta1/i386/iso-cd/debian-testing-i386-businesscard.iso


It is very small - about 32 Mb. Download it, burn it to CD and start your installation from it.

The following screens will appear during installation.

At this point, you should decide how you want to partition your HDD. In our examples, this is done by the simplest method. If you know what you are doing, make your adjustments.

After reboot, you will be able to login to your newly installed system.

Enter 'root' and your password to login.

Then type the command:

apt-get -y install ssh

After all these steps, your system is ready for MOR PRO installation.
