Arrow debian-40r0-i386-DVD: 3 DVD' seem to be a lot

Do I need all 3 DVD to install Debian or can I get away with two or one. I don't think I need a source disc. but don't know what I am downloading. Is their somewhere a list on what in these DVD or do I have to burn them to find out?

I presume you have a reason to choose the DVD, but I do recommend the net-install cd.

However, the .jigdo files offer an overview of all packages in that image, so have a look here: DVD 1, DVD 2 and DVD 3

Question Well I network cable is missing. I need to get one

Well I have used bittorremt to get the DVDs I never used Debian and kubunto did everything for me. downloading the files in the easy part. it look like I need DVD1 and DVD2. thank you for your help. I want to later move the computer right next the the modem. I wish I had a KDE based nat router. but I think that is a hard think to do. the computer does have two nic cards.

I only use DVD1 for installing the testing version, if you have high speed connection you can get away with CD1, but net install would be better for high speed.
