What version are you downloading? It's not the default x86-64 desktop
as that's about 974MB.

What extras do you hope to find on any additional ISOs? There are no
additional disk volumes. SUSE is the only distro that did that
recently and I don't know if they still do.

You will need to update your systems from the Internet, yes. If you
wish to minimise downloads, configure a caching HTTP proxy on your
network and point all your client machines at it; the first machine to
update will pull down the packages and the subsequent ones will get it
from the cache.

Smoothwall Express offers a really easy way to build a caching proxy
server. So does IPCop but it's slightly more complicated. Google them.
