If you wish to install over the net, then all you really need would
be a couple of boot floppies. If you want to use CD as boot media and
intends to build your own CD image (and that you have a local mirror
of Debian package directories), you may check out the debian-cd
package, which are also used to generate the official Debian CD sets.
There is still another good way to get things organized: if you happen
to have slink bootable CDs handly, install the base system with that,
set up apt sources, perform a dist-upgrade immediately (before you have
any other packages installed to minimize the hazzle), and continue with
intalling other packages over the net. This also works very well.
