Huh?

You certainly can get hold of DVD images for Debian sarge - for instance: at 
cheapbytes, $12.99.

Especially right now, with the stable distribution being less than a year 
old, sarge is perfectly fine.  As for updates: 99% of the security updates 
won't affect you - and for the few bigger ones (xserver) you said 
sneakernet is totally feasible - apt-zip and other tools have been 
mentioned.  So, Debian is only network centric if you want to run testing 
or unstable - sarge OTOH doesn't need much new software and can be run 
entirely from the DVDs.
