3.8.1 Install a few more packages after initial install
Once you have made it this far, you have a small but functioning Debian system.
It is a good time to install bigger packages.
Here the first thing you may want to do is select your favorite editor and any
programs you need. You can install many Emacs variants at the same time. See
dselect, Section 6.2.4
Popular editors, Section 11.1.
Also you may replace some of the default packages with full-featured ones.
I usually edit
/etc/inittab for easy shutdown.
