Presuming you have the install disk 1:
Log in as root and type sysinstall
Down arrow to Configure and press enter
Down arrow to Distributions, press enter
Down arrow all the way to X.Org, press enter
Select the parts of the distribution set you require in a similar way.
Press the tab key to switch between the selections and the OK box.
When you're happy with your selections up arrow to Exit which will
take you back to the previous page. Press enter again and you should
then be able to choose the installation media.
It is harder to describe than to do.
