I have two questions please try to answer both.
Official netinst images for the stable release
Up to 180 MB in size, this image is suitable for writing to small CD-R(W) media, 80 mm/3.1" in diameter. The image contains the installer and a small set of packages which allows the installation of a (very) basic system.

What is the "Architecture"? Is it my processor?
I just downloaded i386 because I was thinking "i for intell", but I want to be sure its the right one before I install.
Once I get a network card for my other computer I will be installing Debain and then XAMPP, a VNC Server, and maybe a small counter strike server for fun.
What kind of attacks is my computer/network open to when I forward the ports on my router?
Should I even be worrying about security?
While I'm posting I guess I will ask this also:
Once installed, how much space on the HDD does Debain take up? I only have a 10GB HDD in the computer and I want to use at least half of it for my music so I can make some room on this computer (27GB HDD Lol..)
By the way, I love this smiley :P
