I am getting somewhere with installing Debian 3.0 r 2 on the old Pentium 1 Compaq Presario 1210.

I was able to get the base install and get to tasksel with Debian 3.0 r2. The real problem with this old laptop is the CD drive is not functioning very well. A replacement drive might allow better behaviour. I am slowly getting packages installed but the CD drive keeps getting a read error and I must run tasksel repeatedly. But right now packages are slowly being installed.

The problem now could come from the security updates from the Internet adjusting the distribution up from Woody to Etch and I don't want that to happen.
