 Broadband installation for a custom Linux system

"A lot of tools for bio-informaticians are available for Linux. People used to Windows are often intimidated by the complexity of Linux and therefore don't use these free and great tools. This tutorial describes a step-by-step guide to do a netinstall of Debian GNU/ Linux next to Windows for a dual boot system. Please note that if you follow these steps you'll need a broadband internet connection. To install Linux next to Windows you can't just insert a CD, follow a wizard and drink a cup of coffee while waiting (well, the last thing you can do as a matter of fact). You need to divide your hard drive in sections called partitions."
