Those 14 CDs are for a single architecture.  If you actually download
all 14 discs you will have everything that is in the official Debian

Debian has an absolutely huge number of packages.  Even if you aren't
doing a network install downloading all 14 images is probably a waste of
bandwidth and CDRs :p.
