You only need the first one to install. The rest of the CDs are extra packages.

The 14 CD images are based on Sarge and you are wanting Etch which is the testing branch. You will want to use the Debian Net Installer to get that version.

Yes, you're right on both questions. See http://www.debian.org/releases/ , http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/re...#s-ftparchives , http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/de...etting.en.html for more information.

I think that if you try you will not get disappointed. Maybe you solved the stuff as by now, but I have also got testing on one of my machines; and did it that way: simply downloading the image for a base installation, and later upgrading thru the internet.
