    ok install of debian via net

    ok trying to install via net as not got dvd drive in it and dont fancy downloading all the cds

    anyway ran install select various options unticked email sever anyway decided to then install email server bit but not rest.

    so then tried maual install of kde using apt-get and that download but then fails on trying load it.

    so then reran config and selected desktop took email off etc

    it then uninstalled email but never out desktop stuff on.

    So before i start again any tips might have to download all the cds but prefer not to if can.

    You need to run 'dselect' at the command prompt and that will allow you to set up apt to talk to one of the mirrors.

    You then go down the list and select what you need - easy!

    Any probs, give me a shout this weekend Russ!
