deb package small file size?


I'm JUST getting started with Debian, in fact I have a Knoppix CD in the
mail right now.  I've been looking at the Debian package tree at Wine
debs, and they seem incredibly small.  The normal rpm size of Wine is >6
MB, but the deb was <1 MB!  Am I mis-understanding something?  I dial up
to the Internet at about 14.4 kbps, so if the packages are consistently
so much smaller, I'll be switching almost entirely to Debian.  Thanks for
the help!
