    You only need the first cd for a base install or a full install via ftp.
    OH NOOOOO!!!!!! You did it the way I said?

    That's right, but it's seven CDs of pure, mind-caressing joy.

    I only used the first CD, and then installed lots of stuff through ftp and apt-get. This way I only got the packages I really needed or wanted.

    And no kinds of love are better than others.

    If you have an highspeed connection just use the first one, then install all the other packages as you need them. (Gentoo like!)

    I would strongly recommend that you get the daily build of the Sarge net installer. With Sarge now having the final date, Sept. 15, to be declared stable and a freeze on main, you will be very close to having the final which can be updated with apt-get. They have done a nice job with the installer, but it is still necessary to have the Installation Guide at your elbow for the most trouble-free install.
