I always considered the DVD images as the same as the CD images, the
only difference being the number of packages included on the media. I
always assumed that the debian-installer part would be the same.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

The first media will in most cases give you a fully functioning system.
If you require packages from non-free (for intel wireless :-( etc.)
and don't have access to a network connection during install then you
will need to download any extra packages and store them on a media you
will be able to access.
