I find a net install works best nowadays. Then you just download and install packages as you want to.

The archive is simply huge now so it's a lot to download and burn unless you have machines that are not connected to the net that you want to install or update.

Yes, start with a testing netinst www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/ and install the base and then add the sid repos and do an aptitude full-upgrade to the base, after that you can start to build your testing/unstable system the way you want it.
