Click "Getting Debian"
Click "mirrors" link
Click "CD images download page" link
Click "Download CD images using HTTP or FTP" link (or the http_ftp
Note: you can get this far by going to google and typing
"debian cd download", chose link #2
Choose a site, for me I'd choose ftp.au.debian.org because its close to
Click "3.0rev0" link
Click "i386" link
Download the ISO images.

entire 7 CD set for 21.75 US dollars.
