you only need 1 DVD, or the netinstall cd to install debian

Or, it is possible to simply download the debian cd1 KDE install iso. That would have "everything" and be smaller than downloading all 21 discs and or a DVD.

well now i have figured out the reason for which my system was not running Gnome and i am now running Fedora 8 werewolf and ive installed it from an install dvd and by using spin ive got all the required software on my system up and running!
and also i have started using internet now on a daily basis so,now there is no problem with getting any new software!

By the by i was insisting on having all required softwares on my sys by default because i always find it very tricky to install any new software from any compressed file or even sometimes from any repositories as i can't be always sure that ive added all the required extra files or codecs or not!!
