If you visit me in Sunny South-Africa, I could give you a copy. Perhaps One of the other guys (a bit closer to you perhaps) still has a copy laying about...

it should be possible indeed

Yes, it should not be to hard to build such an image, and I was thinking to it as well. Our idea was to eventually support installation via Live-CD (which fits on CD), but as a temporary solution we could deliver a bare bones ISO based on 2.0. Daniel what do you think?

Minimal install version, suitable for CD-R

Although upgrading to a DVD-R drive is actually the better option (they cost as little as 30 euro now, DVDs write faster and install faster too), I can see that some people would prefer a CD version, particularly for older hardware. A quick way to accomplish a less-than-700MB installer would be to use the same package list as the Live CD. This way, if we eventually have a Live CD which can also be used as an installer, the two versions will be in sync.

i have no problem paying for

It is possible to install Debian from a USB stick, and given that the 2.0 iso should fit on a 1Gig stick it could be a viable option. You could prepare the stick under your current ubuntu... http://www.debian.org/releases/stable/i386/ch04s04.html.en Let us know how it went if you took this route. I have an important recording job this weekend, and I don't want to mess up my system in a test just yet. Perhaps after the 2.1 release. Cheers,

You could try to find one of the older versions - that used to fit on CD. 1.0 "Olympic" is such a version, and it worked well, save a few application bugs that were dealt with over the testing phase of 2.0 You could install 1.0 and upgrade to 2.0... Or if you want to check it out only, try the live version. It also fits on your CDR, but is limited because it cannot be installed. Perhaps we should look at a 2.1 bare bones release, `giving you all the essentials on a CD, and the rest you can get via the web. My suggestion however - DVD writers are very affordable nowadays. Get one and install 2.0 - You'll thank yourself later!

that cant be too hard to do
