The entire Debian archive is ~205 GB. You do *not* want to download
that over a slow connection.
1. Unless you have special needs it is enough to download the first two
CDs. That's about 1.5 GB. If you need just a few other packages it is
much better to install them directly with aptitude (and option 'with
recommends' turned off). You can use the jigdo search facility to find
out on what image is a certain file or what packages are contained on
a certain image: http://www.debian.org/CD/jigdo-cd/#search
2. Order the full CD set (14 CDs?).
If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
