Not all installation types require 5 CDs.
5 CDs comprises the whole of the Fedora Core distribution.
Sounds plenty conservative to me, compared to Mandriva's 10 CD set or 

What you're wanting is similar to a barebones Windows XP install that

Why don't you just move on and forget about Linux rather than spread

requires 5 CDs?
