Sure, when you install, it asks you if you want to do a full install or a not so big install.

NO. You can't do this. NetMeeting is an add-in to Internet Explorer. And the only way to download it is using Internet Explorer (active update).

If you don't want to d/l 14mb (and you'd have to choose full product to get NetMeeting)... you can a) spend $6.00 and order the CD or b) DO THE DOWNLOAD or c) upgrade to Win98 (the whole package is built in).

Little info about the download. IE is "componentized." That means that it's actually several smaller files, not one HUGE file. If your modem is disconnected during the download and installation, dial-up networking will automatically redial and reconnect and continue where it left off. Yes, it will probably take hours unless you are on a very, very fast connection (Cable, ISDN, T1). But you can start it and leave it overnight. By morning, it should be finished.

I know this isn't the answer you wanted to hear, but NetMeeting lacks the necessary components to function as a standalone application.
