I have an old laptop where the floppy drive and the CD ROM drive are
removable modules and cannot be used at the same time. I was able to get
debian installed by first installing MuLinux from floppy disks, and then
booting that and copying the debian image onto the hardrive, then
booting and installing that.



I forgot to mention, it cannot boot from cdrom either. The procedure
sounds crazy without that crucial bit of information. :)
