If you can boot from CDROM you need NO diskettes for Debian.  If you are
booted from DOS, you MIGHT not need any diskettes to install Debian, if
you are installing from CDROM, you need one disk if you have >4M of RAM,
two if you have <4M (one root disk, one boot disk).

How do you boot into Linux from startup with RedHat without a boot disk if
you do not already have DOS installed and if your system will not boot the
CDROM? You STILL need a boot disk for RedHat if it is a clean install.
