The little 50MB business-card size one works well too.

Either way- install the base system from a little CD and it
will get the rest, whatever you decide you need, from the
net via ftp or http (you choose the protocol, you choose the
mirror).  By the way, don't go hog-wild and install
everything you might ever need.  That way lies trouble.  You
can always get more later, so get what you /need/ and get
comfortable with it, then get more.  It's just an apt-get
