Heu, ...

I guess that the apt-get method will use apt-get to retrieve packages. 

apt-get will first download all needed stuff, and once that is done will
install and setup it, eventually asking questions.

It will copy all stuff in /var/cache/apt/archive though, so you will have to
provide enough space fior it.
