"shouldnt be avoided" = is needed!

I've amended 
https://wiki.debian.org/DebianEdu/Documentation/Jessie/Installation to 
explicitly state that the "netinst 'CD'" media also needs internet access, but 
didnt want to touch the requirements in 
https://wiki.debian.org/DebianEdu/Documentation/Jessie/Requirements as a.) 
currently it only lists hardware requirements and b.) internet access is not 
strictly needed for running...

Maybe "internet access" should be listed as requirement, even if only for 
mandatory security updates...

I suggest to keep the wheezy manual as (much as sensible) as it is, eg. the 
addition that internet access is now needed for all media is a sensible one, 
while I wouldnt add this note about the netinst media like I did for jessie...
