This manual is a tutorial, it is described in detail each step of installing the operating system DEBIAN, from the beginning of the installation before the first start-up.

Before installation encouraged to review the system requirements DEBIAN

To install the system must be inserted into the optical drive image disk and restart the computer. When you restart your computer, you must enter the control menu settings BIOS. In this menu, you need to select the primary boot device, in this case it will be the optical drive. After making changes in order to boot from the device reboots the computer.
Follow the instructions on your computer screen, we have a menu installation CD.

Initially, the menu is in English, but not having much knowledge can understand the meaning of these words.
