Although with Etch you can boot off the CD, the installation is in fact no 
different from the other installation methods which means that most of 
the installation will be done over the network.
After setting up the network, you will be offered to continue the 
installation over an SSH connection. All installer components and 
packages are downloaded from mirrors.

If you burn a CD, you can however use that as a source to install 
additional packages after the reboot, although you may have to configure 
it manually.

See also this README file, which is included on the CD:
