You ARE talking about Ubuntu/Kubuntu and not some other distro?

Here is the official blurb from Ubuntu (Canonical) re DVDs"


      DVD downloads

Don't be confused, even though DVDs can hold far more data than the 
typical Ubuntu CD, the main benefit of the DVD downloads is to get 
access to all of the available language packs. *Most people will be fine 
with the standard CD installer.* There are fewer download locations for 
the DVD images and this list is updated less frequently than for the CD 


But then, I think I read that you are happy to purchase a DVD, right? :-)
