Don't download isos. 80% of the stuff you don't need or want.

Download a netinstall cd with base (those 30-100MB isos), install
base, configure your modem and then install directly off the net.

That way you only have to download the programs you actually are going
to install. As an added bonus the new stable revision 3.0R2 has been
pushed to the debian mirrors but the CDs are not yet available.
Installing over the net you will get newer packages and don't have to
upgrade next week.
