Installation profiles are a feature in Drupal core that was added in the 5.x series. The Drupal installer allows you to specify an installation profile which defines which modules should be enabled, and can customize the new installation after they have been installed. This will allow customized "distributions" that enable and configure a set of modules that work together for a specific kind of site (Drupal for bloggers, Drupal for musicians, Drupal for developers, and so on).
Contributed (contrib) modules are plugins for Drupal that extend, build or enhance Drupal core functionality. Use matching versions (modules released for Drupal 5.x will not work for Drupal 6.x). You can view module usage statistics for all modules to view the most popular modules used by the Drupal community.
Themes allow you to change the look and feel of your Drupal site. These contributed themes are not part of any official release and may not work correctly. Only use matching versions of themes with Drupal. Themes released for Drupal 5.x will not work for Drupal 6.x. To preview themes, visit the third-party site ThemeGarden.org.
Theme engines control how certain themes interact with Drupal. Most users will want to stick with the default included with Drupal core. These contributed theme engines are not part of any official release and may not work correctly. Only use matching versions of theme engines with Drupal. Theme engines released for Drupal 5.x will not work for Drupal 6.x.
Drupal uses English by default, but may be translated to many other languages. Translations are now primarily available from http://localize.drupal.org but this list might contain some translations which are not yet migrated. We suggest you look at http://localize.drupal.org first. ComfortHost has customized translation profiles. Ask US!
