No you don't need 52 CDs. CD 1 will give you a basic install with Gnome. Even better DVD 1 will give you a full Gnome install and I think you can even choose KDE, LXDE, XFCE if you'd prefer.

The full CD or DVD set is just if you want every package Debian has available.

And if you've got a good internet connection, the netinstall CD is OK.

The cdrom's : If you have no DVD burner.
DVD's : If you have no internet connection.

But you will never need all 42.500 packages and their source code.
And : You don't get updates from DVD's.
So it's always a good idea with a netinstall :
You get the latest updates at once.

A basic install is about 1100 packages.
With the usual development tools / libraries : 1400 packages.
Listing installed packages ( in a text file ) :
1) dpkg get-selections > installed-packages.txt
2) ls -tl /var/lib/dpkg/info/ | grep list > last-packages.txt

.

You can just download and burn CD 1 that is the one with the installation tool once installed you can install more applications using apt-get. Gnome two is the GUI you will have after inatallation.

Hi esgol, your question suggests you haven't yet read the Debian Installation Guide?

I recommend to use the first DVD, not the CD. The DVD contains necessary tools to get your mobile network connection to work, the CD does not.
