That seems interesting, you can always:

* Buy a set of CDs from one of the vendors selling Debian CDs and
install from it [1].
* Download all the necessary files over the Internet, make a CD set
yourself and install from that [2].
* Download the installation system from the Internet, and get the rest
by downloading as you install [3].
* Buy a computer with Debian pre-installed [4].

Hope that [5] works,
