I am worried that I am still missing something.

When doing the installation, just after the part where installer
configures apt, I got an error.  dmesg reported that the cdrom could
not be opened, this was despite the fact that I had told the installer
that I wanted to use http:debian.uk only.

I had to choose and install packages thereafter "manually", using aptitude.

Thanks again.
