That I'm not sure of. I was just considering the point of saving you burning 4 or 5 times as many CDs when you could burn less DVDs and not give your burner a heart attack ;)
Far better to bring along the scanmodem tool (which will fit on a floppy - remember those?) and host the meeting at a venue with broadband. This isn't a well organised Debian mirror you are considering here - it's a hotch-potch of incompatible and unpredictable sites.
I'm not sure if there is any duplication of filenames across different CDs in a distro. I have a nasty feeling there is.
It's usually the files that tell the installer what disc the ISO comes from. Those would tend to overwrite or not be found.
