& if you know any torrent link that have full iso of it then please tell that too.
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
No. First, of course you only need to download CD or DVD or BD images - the three types of images contain the same packages.
in most cases it is not necessary to download all of the images for your architecture. The packages are sorted by popularity: The first CD/DVD/BD contains the installation system and the most popular packages. The second one contains slightly less popular ones, the third one even less popular ones, etc. You will probably only need the first couple of DVDs (or the first few CDs) unless you have very special requirements. (And in case you happen to need a package later on which is not on one of the CDs/DVDs/BDs you downloaded, you can always install that package directly from the Internet.)
