Is it aslo possible to assume that he has 56k or 33k (as I have) dialup
connection and set of CD sitting on table?
I selected tetex-bin (not latex) in aptitude and here is what it want:

aptitude        Will use 138MB of disk space   DL Size: 59.5MB

So it will download cca. 60MB data. If I am lucky I can download at
speed 3KB/s so it will take more than 5.5 hour to download (if you pray
hard and link does not break).

What is wrong with using CD that you aready have?
Save payment to phone company and ISP and buy a bread (or go to movie if
your stomach is full).
