Quick Debian install

I use these instructions when I need to quickly prep a new system - your mileage may vary.

Burn to CD, boot from this disc
Non-graphical install
Partition to whatever is appropriate
Workstation role - SSH server and the default workstation set
Review /etc/network/interfaces to make sure is appropriate

My typical post-install system prep is as follows (written 2022-08-02):

apt-get install vim screen nmap links lynx smbclient sudo snmp curl wget zsh perl-doc unzip zip git man lsof

chsh -s /bin/zsh

update-alternatives --config editor 
# and pick vim
