Sounds like you may actually be a candidate for not downloading any DVD.
Instead, download only the software that will actually be installed by doing
a HTTP installation, which you begin by downloading a small "net" CD iso to
boot from: http://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Network_installation

An extra advantage of this process is that current versions will be
installed instead of needing to update after completing installation of only
original package versions. Overall download time is smaller as long as you
don't expect to be installing on additional machines or more than one time.

Sounds to you correct, but I don't know how to use this process.

Yes you do.
Its not really and different from what you would do with the DVD:

Insert the disk
Boot from disk
Follow instructions

I did that once and now its my preferred method.
