That's right. Potato is the latest stable release, version 2.2.
Woody is the current "testing" distribution. Eventually it will be
frozen, released, and given a version number.

The potato disk should work fine for most users, provided you carefully
follow the documentation. If for some reason the 2.2r3 install doesn't
work for you, then we can give you instructions for using woody boot
disks with your potato CD.
After you've installed potato (using either its boot disks or the ones in
testing), you can upgrade to woody very easily at any time.

No, there won't be CD images of woody until it is released.
