Q. Ai-je besoin de tous les ISOs ?

A1) No. You can install using only the first ISO and then configure your system to download software and updates from a debian repository. You can also do a network install using a special small ISO image (usually under 100 MB) or using only a handful of floppies.

A2) Downloading all ISOs is massively wasteful of bandwidth. You're highly unlikely to use any software on the last five ISOs. Each of them contains Debian packages, and they're sorted by popularity. The most popular stuff (like X, gcc, KDE, GNOME) is all on the first ISO.

Q. OK, I have an i386 box and Debian etch CD #1. Now what ?

A1) Put the CD in the drive, and tell your BIOS to boot from CD-ROM. The CD should boot and drop you at a boot: prompt. If you read the screen you will see that you should press F1 for help. Please do that, and actually read the help. You must first choose which kernel you will attempt to boot. This kernel is not only used during the installation, but is also installed onto your hard drive, so you will want to choose carefully.
