The way that's worked for me is to leave the minimal install, and just
bring in whatever packages you need by hand after you boot into the
system. In other words, not to use the task selection part of the
installer where you select groups of packages, but to just end the
install when the installer tells you that you have a minimal system
installed, and asks you if you want to continue, and install
additional packages.
