I always refer to the install handbook - I can't emphasize this too much.
I also read the amd64 install notes.
Because I have an extensive Unix/Linux background, I look at the alternate
installation documentation. I often use Knoppix to build up a new
computer based upon this information.
If I have a problem, I review the install handbook again.
