    Hello,
    I'm completely new in Linux world, but I really want to learn how to use UNIX codes and Linux OS. I began by reading Beginner Tutorials here on this site, and find that as the beginner I should start with Debian. So I went on Debian's official site and downloaded the version I can install without internet connection. I downloaded the first three dvd.iso files from there, burned DVDs and started installation. Everything went right more-less, and the installation was completed. I had rebooted computer, GRUB started Debian and than everything stopped. Massages were: could't read file., you need to load kernel first.
    What am I supposed to do?
    Please help.

    Kind regards.

    First question: What is the reason for installing off-line?
    Second question: Did you get the right build for your processor?

    The message means that GRUB can't read that file. Check your disk.

    Thanks for PPPoE comment, it worked and I managed to connect to internet during the installation.
    I finally discovered what was the problem; it was with the disk. I have two hard disks, one SATA 500GB and one HDD 37GB(a hard disk from an old computer), I was trying to install Debian on HDD, but what went wrong I don't know. I saw some posts on other pages saying to check BIOS settings. That was to advance for me, so I installed Debian on SATA and now everything is working fine.
