If you are talking about creating installation CDs for a computer

be on each CD.

Lot of bandwidth.
It would probably be better to use boot.iso and do a network install -
using the DVD on a nearby computer as the network source.

Even simpler is to just buy a DVD drive.  They are about $30 these days.

The hard part will not be the bandwidth of downloading the CD installs. If that is a problem, updating to the current packages after the install will be just as big of a pain.
