Yes, at the install fest we were told to take these disks home and
boot from the first one.

Or must you assume one's computer must have some previous operating
system to enable one to poke around the CDs... hmmm, never mind that.

Anyway, we pop in the debian CD and hit reboot expecting our new
Debian lives to begin... only to be told that even though we have 8
whole CDs there are still some fragments we are missing -- the
instructions!   So we trundle down the mountain back to the lab to
connect to www.debian.org to get outdated instructions for our woody

Anyway, alls you gots to do is,
during those installation screens,
when it gets to the part saying to go to www.debian.org to get
mention also "by the way, also look first on your installation CD,
floppy, etc.!  The instructions are probably right there too!"
