    Ok, last two questions. I illustrated them in order to get my point across easier.

    Most users will get their downloads off this page:

    Index of /debian-cd/4.0_r1/i386/iso-cd

    If you should decide to download from there, you'll probably only need the first 4 iso files.

    Perfect, downloading as we speak, but what are the rest of the .iso images there?

    Extra software packages. I think the most popular packages are on the first 4 but you might find that you want something off the others. Easier to just download the package directly from the Debian Packages webpage.

    Oh, and animated avatars aren't allow, so I've deleted yours. Check forum rules for details.

    Sorry for any inconvenience.
