No you dont.  Durring the instalation process it should ask you which
packages(acctualy tasts which are sets of packages) you want to install.  If
you tell it none then you can go back after you recompile the kernel and use
apt-get to install any packages you want.  Acctually the How-to for
switching from be-os to debian.  I cant seem to find it right now, but i
know a message was posted to one of the debian lists.  Sorry i couldnt help
