It doesn't. It just (re)directs you to where you can find them.

Again, I believe it's a nice idea if Debian comes up with an "official" 
mini-CD iso image (less than 30MB's). This is a much better solution 
than install floppies (unless you're using a really old system), the 
bogus image kit, or the dialup-unfriendly full-size ISO image(s) (if I 
were a newbie I would rather waste the connect time on Mandrake, which 
has a cuter installer).

The mini-CD image would contain the absolute minimum required for a 
networked console system with perhaps, for additional handholding, a 
"temporary" nag screen saying something like "To install additional 
packages, press [blah]"
