The link for the install manual is in my .sig for woody. We've worked
hard on putting everything you need there and making it accurate; for
us to repeat it here just risks making mistakes and being sloppy, as
well as wasting time.

If you have specific questions about what's written, or get error
messages when you try to install, please post again.

As far as adding packages after the basic install, that's all handled 
by (your choice) apt-get, aptitude, dselect, and/or tasksel. The manual
introduces you to these tools also.
