Dependant upon the package selection you choose Anaconda will state 
which CDs you need.
With a minimal selection of packages, Fedora Core requires CDs 1 and 2, 
yes you are spreading

To be able to download and install for free, an open source operating 
that provides some of the most up to date sofware available for Linux 
coming from a company who
contributes to the OSS community a great deal, I don't neccessarily see 
installing Fedora Core
as any bit of "trouble".

If users are needing to save grief in installing software that causes 
"trouble" they need to stop using
that software. There are just too many people who think this way as you 
describe and personally, it's sickening to me.
