Yeah, I can really see that. It is huge, and not easy to gain an 
overview of. Others mention Sarge, the 3.1 version, and yeah, I 
wouldn't install Woody, for a desktop, it was allready outdated when it 
was released. 

But in fact, I would rather suggest you install Ubuntu, which is not 
Debian, but based on Debian. Have a look at http://www.ubuntulinux.org/
They'll send you a free CD too!
