First wait for ESIEE to post a working 0.9.1 ISO at http://mkhppa1.esiee.fr
(the one with md5sum 473c029b513472cccab1a4d6e2156619 is broken).
Hopefully they will get a new one up on Monday.

That is a gzipped image, so uncompress it before burning a CD.

Boot the CD - it should work fine on serial or graphical console.

If you cannot boot the CD, you need to set up a bootp server and
boot the lifimage file on the CD.  The README on the CD should make
that clear.  Having booted the lifimage, you may then install from
the CD or from the network.  Please post again if you still have

(if you are going to do a network install anyway, the current 0.9.1
ISO is ok - you just can't boot from it).
