At this stage I would go for TL2005 (which is what I use myself). The
difference between both is minimal (only pdftex is newer). All setups may
use the provided gwTeX tree with extras. Both TL2004 and TL2005 use the
same teTeX 3 (beta) texmf tree. The TL2003 version uses a teTeX 2 tree and
an additional gwTeX tree of stuff missing in teTeX 2.

The TeX i-Package in the *EXPERIMENTAL* i-Directory (you can read the
README via the Known Packages window) has the updated Gutenberg Fourier
fonts that were recently relesed and a warning if you run into the
i-Installer bug that was discovered. It will be mirrored to the other
repositories soon (this evening, probably).
