You'll need to download the i386 ones. I'm not sure if you'll need all three but maybe. I'm pretty sure you'll need the first two at least. The last one might be source code but I'm not entirely sure.

SRPMs are source RPMs that compile automatically so you have optimized packages. If you want pre-compiled stuff go with the i386 ISOs but if you want everything compiled for your system go with the SRPM ISOs. Compiling from source can mean faster programs but it will take much longer to install Red Hat like this. I would probably be safe and download all three of the ISOs as well.
