Compact and/or bf 2.4 (or else?)

I have a rather recent computer (about three years old) and would like to
install woody.
In order to save on servers usage and bandwidth, I thought to download (using
jigdo) just the base CD, install the system, and then slowly gather all the rest
from the internet, later, using something called apt-get.
Would it be a wise approach?

Also, debian documentation
[http://www.debian.org/releases/woody/i386/ch-install-methods.en.html#s4.1] says
a) `compact' CD would support my 3c905 Boomerang card (without which an
installation would be useless);
b) `bf2.4' CD better supports new things. Also I heard that such bf2.4 thing is

Now: which CD shall I use? Compact or bf2.4?

I also heard of some "option of bf24 install", some command maybe that you put
In case it is true:
a) How does it work?
b) Will I download both CDs, all the same?

Thank you
