Henry you may want to consider acquiring a set of DVD / CDROM that have a 
fairly comprehensive repository selection. For non-broadband users this may 
be the better choice. The set that I have been using for setting up some 
totally off-line workstations has about 25000 packages to choose from, 
however the administrative problem of dealing with the next upgrade remains 
as a consideration. { Ubuntu is a moving target }. Remember the 32 bit and 
64bit processor considerations.

check out:

North America: for example this set for about $40.00 has disk 1 which would be 
the initial ubuntu 8.04 core, the 7 disk set contains most of the 
repositories excepting some of the legal gray line packages.
Hope this helpful
