This is similer to my previous question but is specific hence new subject.

This morning I started downloading the Edgy Desktop CD so I could
upgrade to Edgy.  My internet connection is slow and I did not want to
leave the laptop on for 1/2 day to upgrade.  However I now have looked
at the Upgrade instructions and it says I should of got the
'Alternative CD'.  So my question is if I do a apt-cdrom with the Edgy
Desktop CD and then start a normal internet upgrade will it take a lot
of the packages of the CD?
