Hello World too:-)

This is curious and not recommended at all. In /etc/fstab you only have
/dev/hda?       /               reiserfs        defaults        1 1
? Or present yout mtab of the mandrake machine just here.

First, don't use neither fdisk nor cfdisk.

Well, there are some tools to reduce disk space for usage, but I don't
use them. Next to be known: Do you have any connection with a net
or do you have your machine as a workstation? Which kind of 
Internet Access do you have? Is there any possibility to have a second
harddisk. Can you use CD-RW or DVD-RW?
Did you read allready the concerning HOWTOs, man pages, info,
Debian install.en.txt? If you have the last mentioned one you should
go up to 3.6 And read about fips at a bootable floppy. And the 
following chapters. Or go directly to chapter 6 and read it carefully.

Expecting much more information:-)
