Yep, you can choose which ones to download and install, but I'd
recommend installing all the security updates.
I don't think there are even that many security updates right now, at
least not many large ones, nothing like the update from 6.06 to 6.06.1

There are three ISOs you can download from the website, the desktop CD
(LiveCD), the alternate CD (Text Install CD), or the DVD ISO which has
both the Desktop live CD/installer and Text mode installer. It also has
more packages on the DVD so you don't need to download them to install.
