No, there are servers which do have the DVD downloadable; however, it's
not the case for all the servers.
(Check the 'Direct DVD Downloads' coloumn.)

Yes, it will boot the installer, which then fetches the packeges needed
via your internet connection. However, a connection is mandatory then,
in contrast to an installation from DVD. But keep in mind to update the
system ASAP using 'yum update', for which an internet connection is of
course needed, too.
