The biggest advantage (IMHO) with the 6-CD Powerpack version is the 3D Graphics drivers come pre-built. If that is not an issue for you (on my system, the OpenSource 2D drivers work better than the proprietary ones
) then by all means, download the 3-CD set and install. Then follow the link to EasyUrpmi in my sig, and set up your repositories. (Be sure to include "contrib" and "PLF" as well as "main" and "updates".) From there on, you have access to all the non-proprietary software that is available on the 6-CD set.
