    Especially since 5.10 will be out by then.

    as i said earlier...for some reasons i can download only large files....downloading individual packages is not an option for me

    the first two CDs should be sufficient for a system with desktop environment (gnome and kde)........the rest are for the 15K packages tweaked to work under debian + source

    personally, i use net-repository to install individual packages and do updates, with synaptic

    if you can only download large files, then you better figure out what packages you need and then download the CDs containing these packages.......... still it is recommended that you setup your system with the first two CDs

    what you can do is download the .jigdo from
    from http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/...i386/jigdo-cd/
    and use zless to see what packages it includes....

    output will be like this
    Code:
    8RrGeLdx8t0DpGtp7Y3cqg=Debian:pool/main/a/adduser/adduser_3.63_all.deb
    TgktLzfhqoSCq7EoJ3quaA=Debian:pool/main/a/amiga-fdisk/amiga-fdisk-cross_0.04-9_i386.deb
