Now the base system is being installed:
I install the GRUB boot loader to the master boot record:
Afterwards remove the Sarge Netinstall CD from your system and reboot it:
Configure your time zone:
Enter a password for root:
Create a second user admin:
Choose your installation method. Since I want to do an installtion over the network I select http or ftp.
Select a mirror for your installation:
Enter a proxy for the installtion (if necessary). Normally you can leave this field empty.
Under Debian software selection I only choose Mail server. I will install all other services manually later on.
The network installation starts:
Continue installing libc-client without Maildir support. If you want to use Maildir you can install Courier-POP3/Courier-IMAP (explained later on):
Do not configure Exim as we will replace it with Postfix later on:
Congratulations! Your base system is finished now:
On to the next step...
