Arrow Redhat 9 Question


I want to download Redhat from the redhat site, but there are two different ones to download.

shrike-SRPMS-disc1.iso (also disk 2 and 3) or
shrike-i386-disc1.iso (also other disks)
which set do I want? Thanks in advance!

i386 - pre-compiled binaries ready to be installed

SRPMS - Source code in rpm format - has to be compiled to binary code before they are installed
