What about All those Dvds ,
im downloading right now Debian 5 “Lenny”
but there is many dvds over there like packs dvds ?
do we need them ?
if they were downloaded , will the programs in theme will be installed automatically or we need to install them using the Add/Remove Prog ( or synaptic ) and they say insert Dvd number 1 for each programe ?
Sorry for my bad English , Thank you :)

if you install debian only on one system, you might prefer to download the netinst (http://www.debian.org/distrib/netinst) version of debian (lenny is a specific debian, the stuff below works for all debian versions i know about), it is about 130-180 mb. it will install a very basic debian from where you are able to choose the applications of your needs. the rest debian will do for you. if you install on more than one system, you might prefer to download all DVDs, which enable you to install debian on systems even if they are not connected to internet (or slow conection)
