    22= Installing Debian =
    33
    4 Ideally - you should boot using a Debian installer that uses the serial console. If you can't - just install the normal way.
    5 
    6 == Prepare your laptop - Screen ==
    7 
    8  * Install screen on your debian laptop:
    9 {{{
    10 sudo aptitude install screen
    11 }}}
    12  * Connect your serial cable (or USB - serial cable) from your laptop to the server. You may want to check dmesg after plugging in the cable to see which device is being used. You should have a line along the lines of:
    13 {{{
    14 usb 3-1: PL-2303 converter now attached to ttyUSB0
    15 }}}
    16  * Start screen with:
    17 {{{
    18 mkdir screen-log
    19 cd screen-log
    20 screen -L /dev/ttyUSB0 115200
    21 }}}
    22 == Install Linux ==
     4Come with a bootable USB stick with Debian Squeeze installed (as of 2010-05-25, all physical servers are being installed with squeeze and will be creating KVM virtual servers).
    235
    246=== Initial steps ===
    257
    26  * Put in Daniel's Serial Console debian installer and boot (note - if you don't have a serial installer, use a normal installer and a keyboard and monitor attached to the server)
     8 * Plug in monitor and keyboard
     9 * Boot machine while USB stick is inserted
     10 * Enter Bios/Setup. Specify that Bios should output to serial console
     11 * Ensure that server skips errors like no keyboard attached
     12 * Reboot and select Boot Options and choose to boot to USB stick
    2713 * [Skipping easy steps]
    28  * For DNS servers, enter (in this order) [wiki:marcos.mayfirst.org], loiret, a HE server, and a verizon dns server:
     14 * For DNS servers,  use:
    2915{{{
    30 209.51.163.29 209.51.169.83 65.19.176.2 151.202.0.85
     16Telehouse: 209.51.163.29 209.51.169.83
     17XO: 209.234.253.168
    3118}}}
    3219 * Manually partition the drive
     
    5239 * Choose "Congifure LVM" (selecting the device encrypted in the previous step)
    5340 * Create a volume group called `vg_`''nameofserver''`0`
    54  * Create logical volumes in this volume group based on your needs. A `dom0` will only need a 1GB root partition. A "normal" server might need a 1 GB root, 3GB `/usr`, 5 GB `/var` and 512 MB swap.
     41 * Create logical volumes in this volume group based on your needs. Suggestions: 3GB for /, 1GB swap.
    5542 * After returning to the main disk config menu, click on each logical volume that you create and specify how it should be formatted and mounted.
    5643 * Enter root password in resource db or give to Jamie!
