I think Markku covered it pretty well.  The only thing I might add is
that *I* like to just download the first CD, then, during installation
(which is quite similar to Fedora's) and uncheck everything, including
base system.  This will give you a minimal installation, suitable for
customizing.  Many folks don't want X on a server.  

There is a forum (though not that active) and also a wiki, covering
several server aspects. 

Also Rob, not sure what mailer you're using (maybe a cell phone?), but
it gets difficult to tell which text was yours and what was the text to
which you were responding, at least when using mutt.

Buffy: So. You saw their faces, but you can't describe
them.
Spike: Well, they were human. Two eyes each, kind of in the middle.
