Yes, they have a network install option - you download a small dvd
image that you then use to download/install just the stuff that you

However, I wonder what's in all of those DVDs and whether it's worth
to download all of them and play with them locally. Or whether it's
better to download/install from the network. I have never worked with
Debian before.

Best regards,
