This is in fact what I remember too: one had a choice of Server or  
Workstation and a further choice of KDE or GNOME.  I remember that  
when I saw the choice of KDE or GNOME I had no idea which I should  
choose because I knew nothing about them.

I will re-explore these sysinstall options, and grabbing packages with  
FTP once I can figure out how to get some sort of networking going on  
my new laptop.
