I tend to choose Custom and then select "Everything" (at the bottom of 
the subsequent list).  Disk is cheap, and I don't like wasting time 
going back to fetch RPMs later.  Plus, it largely eliminates the 
dependency hunt problem.  Another benefit is that you'll be likely to 
have the latest version if you use an automated RPM update system; I've 
seen people go back to distribution CDs and install older, vulnerable 
versions of packages and forget to immediately update.  Of course, YMMV.
