Forums: 

I booted Ubuntu Natty run

# cd /media/debian/root
# wget
http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/main/p/pppoeconf/pppoeconf_1.19_all.deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/main/r/rp-pppoe/pppoe_3.8-3_amd64.deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/main/p/ppp/ppp_2.4.5-4_amd64.deb

then booted Debian stable, tried to install the packages, got the
expected information about dependency issues, booted Ubuntu Natty again
and now I run

# cd /media/debian/root
# wget
http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/main/libp/libpcap/libpcap0.8_1.1.1-2_amd64.deb

and will reboot debian stable.

Will this become a never ending story aka running gag? Any ideas what
packages I might have to add?

Next reboot to download

After installing those 5 packages I was able to set PPPoE by pppoeconf,
but when I run

apt-get update

I was asked to insert a CD.

Perhaps there are no entries for repositories? I'll take a look.

Isn't there a way just to use another media to install Debian stable,
but downloading 8 DVDs or more than 50 CDs? Is it enough to download the
first CD or DVD?

Netinst is a PITA.
