I usually don't even use the full CD / DVD1, but only the "business card" or "netinst" images (20M or 100M IIRC): you install a very basic system and just (automatically) download the rest -- and only what you really need -- via the net. Of course you only do this if you have a reasonably fast Internet connection (home DSL is fine, doesn't need a huge pipe. But don't try it via a ISDN / Modem link...) Remember: Debian == * Linux kernel + X.org + KDE and GNOME and lots of other stuff at less than 1G (and this is already more software than you get with a windows install DVD) * OpenOffice/LibreOffice, GIMP, digikam, amarok, inkscape, scribus, ... (tons of applications) * wesnoth and quite a few other games * eclipse, kdevelop and a lot ofther development tools * ... - you name it, we have it * ... - we don't have it, you don't want it ;-) cheers -- vbi
