You didn't say whether your installation target has network access. If so, you can use the netinst image and just install whatever else you require over the net. If you don't have network access, you can download the first or first two 2CDs, which contain the most popular packages.

The CD FAQ will help you further.

You can use the netinstall CD (128 MB) or the first CD of the set and add more software via the internet.
