Question Mandrake 9.0, what are the 3 ISO images?


Mandrake 9.0 has 3 ISO images. The first two are necessary I think, but what is in the 3rd? I did not find a description quickly on their www site or in the FTP readme files.

It's called "internationalization" so it's for worldly people, like Mara

Not a necessary disc, just as disc 2 isn't necessary either. But more programs, so why not? Yeah, I think disc 3 is really rather than not necessary, but rather a space/bandwidth consumer So if you are in the US and have no need for things like non-us characters, then no need to waste your time/bandwidth there.

Cool

yup, but actually, what i usually do is just burn the installation disc and then get the other stuff off the net... since it's mandy, you can get most of your stuff on www.rpmfind.net

but that's just me. don't sweat it .
