   Debian are about to release their next stable version 5.0 Lenny, you need
the AMD64 version for 64-bit PC hardware apart from the Intel Itanium
series. Assuming you will have broadband just download the businesscard CD
image for your processor type and that will download the rest as required. I
normally use a rewritable CD.
