If by "select "default"" you mean that you don't make 
make any changes at the "Select Packages" page, then
your observations are correct.

Did you select "Install from Internet" or "Download 
Without Installing"?  If you did the former, when 
'setup.exe' completes, you've already installed the
packages you downloaded.  If you selected the latter,
you need to run 'setup.exe' again and choose "Install
from Local Directory".  You'll need to provide 'setup.exe'
with the directory you chose to download the packages to.

>Thirdly,for full installation what will I do?

Go to the "Category" view on the "Select Packages" page and
click on the word "Default" next to "All" until "Default" changes 
to "Install".

>the meaning of "Full Installation" here?

Install all the packages that 'setup.exe' offers on the 
"Select Packages" page.
