OK, thank you.
So I should install an hibrid.

I am more interested in its router/firewall and nas characteristics than in distributing multimedia contents, as the system where i am going to install it is not very capable (graphics are old intel inboard).

Another con for DVD installation: you have no control over how the system is partitioned :-(

Coming for a "hardcore" server background in IT (and therefore being totally paranoid about data loss etc!), I totally agree with this in particular. The main reason I went with the CD version was so that I can software R1 (mirror) my partitions in kubuntu before installation of the core.
