If you just want do do things the once, to avoid downloading BIG ISO
files. You could download the small rescue ISO, and do a network
installation of the whole thing. I've done that, and think that it took
less time to download the packages that were actually going to be
installed, and install them. Instead of downloading three entire 650
meg ISO discs, and installing just some packages from them.
I wouldn't recommend that approach if you were going to install to
several machines, unless you set up your own caching proxy, in between.
Thank you, for this information.
It is just for one machine, so I shall download the rescue iso.
I don't need big programs like ooo kde and so on,
just small ones, like fluxbox, mplayer and some others.
