Re: installation

There are two (or were) different installation disks. It sounds like you used the "Live" install. I've always downloaded and used the FULL install DVD specifically for the reasons you mention.

Re: installation

If you used the 3.5 GB DVD, you should be able to install packages. If you are looking more software than what is in the DVD, you can connect to internet during installation.

Is it possible that some items you are looking for are in different groups or are you not getting a package selection screen at all? What do you mean by "software related settings configuration in details"?
