question regarding f16 under various DEs

Since fc5, I have always downloaded an iso of the full image of Fedora
w/ Gnome. Given the emails on f15 and now f16, I am interested in
looking at alternatives to Gnome. After much clicking through the Fedora
site, it appears to me that only f16 w/ Gnome has a direct download DVD,
all the others are spins which only offer Live or BitTorrent versions
(this may be incorrect as I have no idea whether BitTorrent provides a
full image DVD or just a Live).
The reason I ask is that I have never had any luck with Live images and
prefer to install a new release of Fedora as a fresh install and not an
update ... and really like having media that has the release on it and
not a media that I still need to download more stuff to get the release.
Hopefully someone will politely tell me this is a dumb question and I
just missed something obvious; otherwise, I will assume that I have to
do kde, xfce, lxde, etc via Live.
Thanks in advance,
