Making the cut

The choice for me is easy to make.
Let me take a remote scenario and ask you to make a tough choice.
You're a relatively unknown author with the opportunity of being published.
The publisher likes your book and offers you an advance.
You have two choices - 
Take a large advance, or ask for a smaller advance.
The things to remember are that you are relatively unknown, and this is an advance on the book sales, you won't see any more cash until the advance is paid off.
What would you choose?
I'd go for a smaller fee as it is paid off sooner.
