It's probably simpler just to take your computer over there and do it.

Strike is right, since sid/sarge are always changing, you will probably not want to download all of the ISO's since they may be dated!

If you want a distro that will start you out reasonably well from scratch, you might consider downloading the Libranet 2.7 ISO images (2 CD images). Ths software will work well right out of the box. Then you can update it, little by little. If you want something newer, Libranet 2.8 is based on recent Sarge images, but it's not free. Either one would make an excellent starting point and I hightly recommend Libranet!

Once started, you've got a Debian system with Woody or Sarge roots beneath you. Again, I recommend Libranet highly.

Well, I just meant for the install. The daily updates aren't that bad over dialup, I'm told, except when the bigger packages get updated (biggest package I know of is 50MB or so, but that doesn't get updated very often). Most are less than a MB.

What I do is I grab DAMN SMALL LINUX, a 50MB Debian based distro.

Install that, and just apt-get everything I need, as I need it.

Yes indeed. DSL is based on Knoppix. It has the Knoppix base.
But if you want to know what is there in each of the ISO s of Sid or Sarge (why Sarge - go straight to SID -they are almost the same!!), you can find it from the download mirrors.
