I've never seen a live RaspberryPi. Only photos and comments
in emails. Anyone using the machine will know more than I do.
Nevertheless, I install Debian using the netbased CD only.
The machine boots from the CD and configures a network connection.
I deselect almost all optional "tasks" and finish installation of the
most basic system with networking. Then reboot and use aptitude
to install the packages I want. I only use apt-get where specifically
instructed, as in installation of the iceweasel backport.
Debian has thousands of packages and only a small subset is needed
to support AosLinux.

If you have a standalone router, an ordinary Ethernet patch cable
will work. If you have a Linux router computer, you might need a
crossover cable connected to the Ethernet card. I've read that
some newer adapters auto-sense and cross the signals automatically.
I have old adapters.
If the Raspberry pi has a USB socket and no Ethernet socket you
should get a USB-Ethernet adapter. I use Linksys adapters
and one Belkin, all a generation old. Can't recommend for the

The net-install installer should take care of that. No need to be
concerned with details. I'll speculate that the installer is put onto
a USB store and the Raspberry is booted from it. Google should
find the instrctions.

There is no substitude for good tools but they must be acquired
