New Sarge install

Title: Message
Hello list,
I am new to Linux and have some questions about a new install of Sarge.  I come from FreeBSD so I do have some familiarity with Unix operating systems (Unix-like in the case of Linux).  I am currently downloading all the ISO's of the "testing" branch via Jigsaw Download.  I believe there is 14 disks in all.  The questions I have are:
The "testing" branch should give me Sarge correct?
Does Sarge come with the 2.4 kernel or 2.6?  I couldn't get a definitive answer to this question on the web.
If so, does the distro provide a fairly painless upgrade path to 2.6, i.e. is there a 2.6 package?
Are there any "gotchas" with the install that I should be aware of?  I am installing a dual boot with FreeBSD on a Dell Latitude C600 laptop.
Why are there 14 disks in the Sarge distro and only 7 in the Woody distro?  What are the extra disks for?
I have been able to find some very helpful information via Google with regards to Debian, installation, packages, etc but the above questions are still lingering.  Your help is appreciated.
