Debian Installation Guide — Development version

This page contains the development version of the Installation Guide for the Debian Installer. This page is primairily targeted at writers and translators of the manual.

The official version of the Installation Guide for Lenny can be found on the Lenny release pages. This version may be updated if changes are made in the Guide that apply to the current official release of the installer.

The version of the manual available from this page also includes documentation of post-Lenny changes to Debian Installer. This means that it reflects the daily builds of the installer. However, some changes may not yet be documented.

Status of the Installation Guide

A large part of the Guide was copied from the old installation guide for Woody. Some parts still need to be updated and some parts should to be restructured and/or rewritten to improve readability.
The main parts that need to be updated are chapters 2 to 5.

The second concern is that the information for some architectures is outdated and/or not reviewed for Debian Installer. This is indicated by a warning at the beginning of the manual.
