Ok, let's fix this.. the A and AP sets are required..
                     the D set is referred as program development, you 
need to make sure everything is installed for circle to compile.
                     the N set is for networking, you need it even if you 
don't plan to use the internet.
                     the Q set is for the linux kernel and images. It's 
recommended that you install it.
