Default Do I need all of the 6 Fedora-Install-CD's?

Hi,
torrent is running in circles after fedora, and I wonder: do I really
need to burn 6 CD's? I mean clearly Nr.1 is the bootable one, but how is
the package organised? In alphabetical order like avlib is on disk#1 and
zlib on disk#6? Or are the important packages on disk#1 and the other
disks are for users without net-access?!?
Well, if I get my internet running, I can download all the packages I
need...

So, thank your for helping along through the linux jungle :-)

Wishing a nice evening (its 02:06 am in Germany...)
Chris

Pretty much, but if you have a fast connection, you might be better installing a base system from cd 1 or cd 2 and then use yum to install the DE that you want.

Depending on what you want, you might be better served installing from Live CD with the DE(Desktop Environment) that you want. There are GNOME and KDE cd from the GetFedora Links.
