Mandrake Linux 10.1 Download Info Query

Do i really need to download the 3 iso's if i don't need the source code?

Would the "Mini Disk" iso be enough to install a fully working MandrakeLinux environment?

it really depends on the packages you need to install on your system. I usually get all the CD's in case i need them all (most of the time I do).

NEW! Mini ISO-CD Download (needs high-speed Internet access: installation starts on CD and uses Internet to complete)
IIRC you can do a basic desktop with just the first disk, but it's usually best to get all 3. I can't remember if the installer's individual package selection allows you to see which disk something's on, though I know there's a prompt to ignore using a cd if you dont have it. I've only ever done installs with the complete set of disks (usually buy all 4 for about 9).
