I am totally new to the Debian universe and want to use a USB stick so as to download, burn and then install Debian on a PC I got.
I read the documentation of Debian online (https://www.debian.org/CD/) although I would be grateful for some pointers.
First of all as advised I went to the download page and choose
Downloading Debian CD/DVD images via HTTP/FTP
I choose the most common distribution of amd64 DVD and got re-directed
At this point I can see that there are three
.iso Debian DVD's, my first question is which one should I use, from instinct I would say the 4.4Gb release?
I download the iso file, and here is where my lack of Linux knowledge kicks in, I insert the empty USB stick and open a Terminal there. If I copy and paste the iso file in my USB stick, will it operate, probably not.
Continuing the exploration of the Debian website (https://www.debian.org/releases/stable/amd64/ch02s04.html.en#idp5731200)
I went to the USB section, although even through other Google searches, I don't understand how can I perform the creation of the Debian USB bootable.
the workstation I use now, is a cluster UNIX based, with scientific Linux 6, I tried to do it from my personal Windows laptop but the malware in some programs were annoying.
