Yes, this is all you need for the install.

The DVD is also an installation disc(and live cd at the same time) but
also contains many of the packages in the apt repositories so that
generally users with lower bandwith can install software from the DVD
instead of having to download it at the time they want to install the
desired package.

Hope this helps,
