The third disk has server and other applications that you didn't select to install. Keep it handy, you may want it. For the other, I assume you get to the console prompt? No graphics. If you do, log in as root, and run

If you have a high speed connection, you might want to try Mandrake 9.2. It is newer and has more up to date software and features. If you have a Dell (LG CD-R drive, upgrade it's firmware first)
