You'll be given the opportunity to pick an installation source.
Internet is one option but cd/dvd is another. When you pick cd/dvd,
you'll be prompted to insert each dvd in the dvd drive so debian can
index what you have. Once all of that is done, to install a package
you'll be prompted for one or both of those cd/dvd's if the install you
want needs files from both of them. To move over to internet for your
source, you're going to have to comment out active lines in
'/etc/apt/sources.list and add in internet repository lines to select
mirrors and distributions. Fortunately for you, a tool exists to help
you select your best internet mirrors. The security mirror is separate
from the debian main mirror and there is also a multimedia mirror that
can be installed in /etc/apt/sources.list. Once you have changed
/etc/apt/sources.list, you want to run aptitude update first then
aptitude safe-upgrade to get updates those dvd's don't have.
