May I ask if there is still people downloading the 6 cds or the DVD? I see no point of such desition.

The single live cd should be enought.

Depends what you want to do. If you want to perform a default install then yes, the live CD would be enough. But the problem with most live CDs is that they do not let you perform a custom install. The DVD allows you to customize the install. I always perform custom installs because I am a performance freak. But the DVD is a bit too much. A minimal CD or a netinstall CD are the best options.
I am very grateful to Fedora because it is truly the trailblazer distro. Fedora is one of the best things that ever happened to Linux.
