Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

If you mean get the installer to fetch updates during the install, I don't think Mint will do that. But if you have one computer running Mint with updates already installed, you can transfer them to another machine rather than download the updates all over again. There's a tool in the System menu called APTonCD that'll archive your updates and installed packages so you can easily transfer them to another machine.

Thanks. That`s all i needed to know. But that seems like alot of work, so i`ll just install normally and then update...
