The CD problem fixed when I looked at the bios setup I changed. This debian-edu setup was with the CD install, so I will try the USB install to see if the time can be shorter. (I used fdisk to delete some partitions and start over, the partition was past Fedora, which used a huge LVM and many partitions that I didn't want.) Tomorrow, I will have more time to install and setup the network. Thanks,
