gateway m-6848 4GB ram

so debian just downloads the updates while installing? i thought it was getting also open office , the applications that did't install and all that stuff.
ok. thanks anyways . guess i'm going to install debian and download stuff from synaptic or whatever as i need it . this way the installation will also be smaller . thanks.
