  "This is a desktop distribution; people who are looking for lean'n'mean
  servers should look elsewhere, as 1.2GB of disk space is populated at this
  point."

...

  "Although the default install is a complete desktop (at 1.2GB), people who
  are looking for lean'n'mean servers should enter 'custom' at the installer
  boot prompt. This will install a fairly minimal, useful basic system, with
  important diagnostic and expected *nix tools [Ed: such as less(1)]."
