Debian Squeeze install on Dell PE2950

I'm installing the latest stable version of Debian Squeeze on a new Dell PE2950 server and am in the process of downloading then burning all ISOs to DVD of which there are eight. I'm using the images found here:

Additionally, I will be installing mysql with INNODB as the DB engine. This is going to sound very elementary, but is it necessary to download and burn all eight ISOs found in the above link? I cannot do a network install and need to get this up by Wednesday 10/6/11. Any suggestions concerning whether the ISOs above will work or which ones are imperative to get the base install working. Thanks!

The first DVD is more than sufficient to get a base install. In fact all you need is the first CD.

If you can download the DVD's it is not obvious why you cannot do a network install. You just download a small iso, burn it and it takes care of everything.

I really just needed to know if the first ISO was sufficient. Thank You!
