[ CCing the bug *again* - if you're actually looking for support, please try to help here. ]
For context, I asked which page was being referenced, thinking it might be http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/release/current/amd64/iso-dvd/ On Mon, Feb 18, 2019 at 02:31:49PM +0100, Ricky Tigg wrote: >Wasn't needed to guess long, or even to guess at all.

There is text *directly* on the page you're using which says: """ There are lots of files here! Do I need all of them? In most cases it is not necessary to download and use all of these images to be able to install Debian on your computer. Debian comes with a massive set of software packages, hence why it takes so many disks for a complete set. Most typical users only need a small subset of those software packages. Initially, you will only need to download and use the first image of a set (labelled as debian-something-1 to be able to start the Debian installer and set up Debian on your computer. If there are more images available here (labelled debian-something-2, debian-something-3, etc.), they contain the extra packages that can be installed on a Debian system (as mentioned previously). They will not be bootable and are entirely optional. If you have a fast Internet connection, you're most likely better off installing any desired extra packages directly from the Debian mirrors on the Internet instead of by using these extra images.
