Hi, you're looking for the inet install cd.  If you put that in to the 
computer it will run for a few seconds then stop.  When it does, hit s and 
then hit enter.  That s tells debian you want it to talk to you.  You can 
put each cd in the cd drive and try typing volname /dev/sr0 and if 
/dev/sr0 is found you'll her your cd spin up and then debian will tell you 
what the electronic label is on that disk.  This only works on iso9960 
images so that's how you can tell iso9960 disks from other formats when 
those don't work.  Hope this helps you.  There is a main menu on demand 
archive of podcasts and debian installation is covered on one of these.  
That's how I found out how to install debian myself.On Mon, 4 Mar 2013,
