I think there is not such a thing as Woody Net-install, because net-install
is newer than Woody. The last revision of Woody seems to be 3.0_r6. It is
available at http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian-cd/3.0_r6/jigdo/i386/
For an ordinary installation at a place where you have access to the internet,
you need only the first CD, or in slightly difficult cases the first two CDs.
