You'll probably find you only need 1-2 CDs to get Debian running
decently. The packages are sorted by popularity so you only need CDs
11,12,13 if you feel you really can't manage without xringd, protoize or

I haven't checked personally just how far you can get without the whole
set, but that's the general idea.  You could do a base install from only
a couple of CDs, then add any other specific packages of interest from
the net.
