I would have used debian sarge (testing)
instead of woody (stable).


You don't need jigdo
if there is already an installation CD.


Here are the network install CDs for sarge.


http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/


For i386 you wil probably want this iso
http://cdimage.debian.org/pub/cdimage-testing/sarge_d-i/i386/rc3/sarge-i386-netinst.iso


After you are installed then edit /etc/apt/sources.list
and change each word "testing" to "sarge"
(most debian mirrors recognize either name).


This will allow you to stay with sarge
even when sarge becomes offically "stable".



The network install CD is dead simple.
