If you have enough of a net connection to download everything
to put on a DVD, then you probably have enough net connection 
to just install over the net and thus only need CD disk1 and 
not the rest.    So, a DVD is not really necessary and people
have other work to do.

But, if your comfort is improved by having a DVD setting around,
then just download the CD ISOs as someone has suggested and build
your own DVD image from them and burn it.   Of go to BSD Mall or
one of the other places that sell them and buy one.
