You would only need the first Woody CD for a basic installation. (In fact
you don't even need all of that CD; there are mini-CD Woody installations.)
How many CDs you would need to dist-upgrade Potato would depend on what
packages you have installed in Potato, and where in the 8 Woody CDs their
counterparts are found. I don't know about that.
I suggest an alternate strategy. Configure your network with static IP, then
dist-upgrade to Woody, then configure dhcp.
Another alternative would be to install just the dhcp packages (and their
dependencies) from Woody, then configure dhcp, then dist-upgrade. Those
packages are basic to Woody and will be found on the first CD.
