Yeah. Thats correct. Debian comes as 6 dvd images. What you need is just first. Rest are just optional that you can install through synaptic.

Or you can just download the netinstall cd for what ever platform you are using i.e. x86 amd64. usually under 200mb.

Yeah net install is good if you have a good net connection. I would not go for it for we do not have fast enough internet connections here in India.
