There is. You only need to get the boot disk, the root disk, and the 
three base disks. Follow the steps through the installation menu and you 
end up with a base system. From there, if you use dselect, it will help 
with the interdependancies and should provide you with as complete a 
system as you desire.

Try it, you'll like it :-)
