Yeah my first install last night had a smallish (200Mb IIRC) and it fell 
over in a screaming heap. It seems that during the package aquisition 
stage, it does lots of apt-get -d's and then apt-get installs. I agree, it 
should be doing apt-get clean's as it goes or something to keep the space 
consumption to a minimum.
