How to pick a "rolling" release instead of the standard release
When you get a network install cd, even if you are getting it from the rolling area, it points to the standard release (such as lts45). To actually get the rolling release, you have to tell it at the boot prompt. So, instead of just hitting return, or typing "linux" you would type the following ...
lts30rolling - "nfsrolling"
lts4rolling - "ftprolling" (prefered) or "nfsrolling"
slf5rolling - "httprolling" (prefered), "nfsrolling", or "ftprolling" (ftprolling is slow)
