Correct me if I'm wrong, but apt whould be able to handle multi-cd
sets.

In your original message, you note that the install was easier than
you thought.  This was true for me also.  Debian installation system
gets horrible press for some reason.  IMHO, it is the best and most
flexible one I've seen. (I've done RedHat 5.2, Caldera 1.3(?), Suse
6.x(?), and Debian slink)
