No, no I didn't.  I did *know*, however, that it is entirely possible to
install without a DVD, despite a strong assertion to the contrary.  That
was my quibble.

I agree that DVD-only is a limiting factor, I encountered that myself.
I had to disassemble boxes to temporarily make use of drives from other
PCs, as I was unlucky enough to have a box that didn't want to network
install at the time.

I'll see if I can find them again, but they've been mentioned on this
list.  There were some places supplying discs, there were some torrents
for them, I recall reading about one or two download sites, and there's
ways to spin your own.  I'm sure I read a FAQ about this, allowing
people stuck in that boat to approach it the way that suited them best.
